contact lens

while many augmented reality application use mobile phones or other interactive devices, university of washinton professor babak amir parviz and his students want to embed AR technology right into the eye. parviz and his students have been working on AR embedded contact lenses that utilize sensors and wireless technology. right know the technology is in its early days, but researchers hope that one day hundreds of semitransparent LEDs can be embedded onto a thin lens to create a display for  users. this eye implanted display would most likely rely on an external device for controls and processing. it could be used for entertainment purposes or even to monitor one’s health. next time you go to get your eyes checked at the doctor, they may also be able to offer you the latest contact lens display.
