DARPA Invests In Megapixel Augmented-Reality Contact Lenses

Clay Dillow of PopSci:

"The augmented reality future we were long ago promised has been slow to come around, perhaps restrained most by the basic biology of our own eyes, which are unable to properly see detailed images placed very near the pupils. But via technology developed in part with a certain government agency, Washington-based Innovega has created a unique contact lens technology that allows the eye to focus on images projected very close to the eyes as well as objects in the real world beyond."

The story is too old to be commented.

Very interesting technology. It is awesome that they can make something the size of a contact lens that allows you to see a screen as close as the inside of a pair of glasses. As far as me ever using them? No thanks, I wore glasses before since I could never get used to putting contacts in my eyes everyday.
