“Terminator Style” Contacts Coming in the Near Future

After having success through the animal trials, a new “type” of contact lens will expand our generation’s technology to a whole new level, say scientists.

This new type of contact can allow wearers to read emails and texts floating right in front of their eyes by using computer generated images.  Tests on this new device say that it is safe but it only works if the lens is put centimeters from the wireless battery.  Therefore, the main problem is finding a convenient power source.

Scientists envisage hundreds more pixels could be embedded in the flexible lens to produce complex holographic images.  This would open up a whole new world of technology to us.

Examples include drivers could see 3D images of GPS directions, video games can be taken to a completely new level, and they can also provide up-to-date medical information such as blood sugar levels.

This is a very exciting development in technology and hopefully we can see these being further developed in the upcoming years.
