LED Lights Make Augmented Vision a Reality | Elemental LEDucation
University of Washington researchers have figured out how to implant semitransparent red and blue LED lights in contact lenses, for the purpose of receiving and displaying data in sharp visual images and video. This means wearers will literally be able to watch TV or view photos that are projected directly onto their eyeballs.

Once miniature green LEDs are developed (and they’re in the works, as of now), full color displays will be possible. Once that happens, the possibilities are endless. Think about everything your smart phone can do right now, and imagine the same being possible for your eyeball. This news is a little scary and a lot fascinating, if you ask me—at the very least, with LED contact lenses, your hands would be free to pet your robot or tinker with your hover board.

Lead researcher Babak Parvis comments “You won’t necessarily have to shift your focus to see the image generated by the contact lens,” it would just appear in front of you and your view of the real world will be completely unobstructed when the display is turned off.

Wow! First thoughts:

– A great torture device… you can close your eyes, but you can’t stop the images, like in Clockwork Orange!

– A pleasant way to fall asleep… by showing images that slowly get darker and fade away…

– Perhaps a learning tool… I learned a lot by listening to certain complex rhythm while sleeping. Perhaps on could learn certain complicated movements by watching video of them over and over… perhaps timing the images the start AFTER one falls asleep…

What do you think?

    Well I know that music affects the brain while sleeping. I have used your Music for years to stop my Nightmares and it has worked completely! Of course I was also hoping I would get smarter at the same time…lol…
