Contact lenses of the future could beam text messages directly to your eyeball

For decades, people have talked about a future where information can be sent directly into your eyes via either glasses or contact lenses. Google and others are already working on the glasses part of it, but advances in tiny technology have made it capable to put an LCD display right on your eye in a contact lens.

Ghent University’s Centre of Microsystems Technology announced that its researchers have developed the embeddable LCD display. In the past, contact lens displays have been limited to a few pixels to form an image, but this new display uses the entire curve of the contact lens.

Chief researcher Jelle De Smet told the Telegraph that practical applications might be just a few years off. Using the contacts as adaptable sunglasses is a possibility, but so are displays for driving directions and text messages.
