Displays on the eyes

New Contact Lenses With LED Displays is Must-See TV, Literally
“A research team at the University of Washington has designed a contact lens that has the ability to project LED displays directly into the irises. The concept originated in 2008 when the UoW team developed a proof-of-concept contact lens embedded with electronics that gave diabetes patients the ability to monitor glucose levels in their tear fluid. The prototype contained a single red LED that would project feedback to the lens bearer. The team has since crafted blue miniature LEDs, leaving only green to be developed for a full-color display. The lenses are powered remotely by nearby “loop antennas,” which transmit electricity directly to the lens. ”
