Innovega demonstrated at CES 2012 nanotechnology designed into contact lenses that, when combined with a special set of glasses, allows one to focus close to read a heads-up display projected on the glasses, while seeing far. They can also be used for delivering full-field 3D or for 360 degree gaming experience. In this video, Randall Sprague, CTO of Innovega, explains how this device works and potential applications.

The self-driving cars we’ve been promised since the dawn of the auto age are here. Google’s amazing robo-Prius hybrids have racked up more than 200,000 miles on public roads. Luxury cars boast gadgets that do everything but steer the car for you. And General Motors has predicted we’ll see autonomous tech in showrooms by 2020.
These cars have the potential to make our roads safer, our commutes more enjoyable and our lives richer. Well, OK, maybe that last one won’t happen. Still, there are doubters, haters and Luddites who say this will never happen. They offer a litany of reasons. Here are the five most common things the haters say, and why they’re wrong.

Law #2: A global market place will result in lower pay and fewer opportunities for many careers. (But also in cheaper and better products and a higher standard of living for American consumers.) Law #3: Professional people will more likely be freelancers and less likely to have a steady job.
