Computer display on a contact lens

Part of my dream computer is becoming reality.  (I really want a computer that’s part of me like Peter Hamilton dreams up.)

Today researchers have shown that you can add an electronic display to contact lenses. 

In the future people will be able to see a display hanging in the air – just like in the science fiction books.  Nobody else would see it.  Although it will first be used for things like cell phone caller id but could eventually be used for everything you normally see on a computer screen.

You can read more about the initial research on the University of Washington website.
