THE END OF SMARTPHONES: Here's A Computer Screen On A Contact Lens | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"Ghent (University, Belgium) researchers imagine that in the near future, (contact) lenses like they one they've built will be able to change the color of the wearer's eye, work as sunglasses, or serve a medical purpose like protecting a damaged iris from bright light.


Farther out in time, De Smet and his team believe the lenses could function as a head-up display, "superimposing an image onto the user’s normal view."

 

Eventually this kind of screen-on-the-eye technology could displace the smartphone as as the dominant way people access the Internet and connect to each other." -- from the source: http://www.businessinsider.com/
