Watching ‘television’ through your contact lenses

3D television is the next best thing. Now there’s a technology where you can watch television, without a television. This sounds really weird, and they are still working on this new invention. I think it’s really hard to explain, so here’s an explanation from another website.

What it is

“Researchers at the University of Washington have been working on extremely tiny and semi-transparent LEDs designed to be integrated into contact lenses. So far, they’ve managed to create red pixels and blue pixels, and when they can figure out green ones, they’ll be able to make full colour displays.”

Even with being millimetres from your retinas, the images created by the lenses will be in perfect focus, and when the display is turned off, everything will be transparent. Since the lenses are inside your eyelids, you can’t un-see anything that they decide to project, which is something that you’ll have to consider when you’re watching something especially scary or gross on them.

Power will come from a beltpack that sends out electricity wirelessly to the lens itself, and data will be send the same way so that you don’t have to plug HDMI cables into your eye sockets.

Why it’s Cool

I really like all the new inventions, these things are opening a big world for me, they inspire me at the technological possibilities. When these lenses are on the market, there is more available than just a television. Maybe it is even possible to connect your mobile phone. If you imagine that, you know that there is more possible with this technology.
