Scientists at the University of Washington have discovered a way to bring the concept of info-vision streaming to life. The creation: a contact lens that can pick up a phone signal and stream data across a person’s sight. LED lights, a wireless antenna and an electronic circuit are embedded into the lens, enabling it to pick up the signal from a cell phone and generate the words right in front of the wearer’s eyes.
This revolutionary technology makes reading news, text messages, emails and even browsing Facebook a hands-free task. With media already taking over as far as the eye can see, is the bionic eye be the new trend in sight?
