contact lens with a Circuit..

This contact lens has a circuit on it, which
lets you see things as if they were
projected in front of you – a road map,
World of Warcraft, exam hints, the
possibilities are endless. The creators,
... University of Washington duo Ehsan
Saeedi and Samuel Kim, made the device
using nano-circuitry and teeny-weeny
LEDs, 1/3mm across and 20nm thick.
They’re also planning on including a solar
cell for power. So far, they haven’t tested
it extensively, but it’s made out of the
same flexible organic materials that
regular contacts are made from, so even
though it looks a bit uncomfortable, the
creators claim that you won’t even know
it’s there.
