Film Coating Transforms Contact Lenses Into Computer Screens

Societal detachment continues with the possibility of future contact lenses doubling as electronic displays. At least no one will call you a Glasshole.

Scientists from the University of South Australia's Future Industries Institute have successfully completed "proof of concept" research on a polymer film coating that conducts electricity on a contact lens, with the potential to build miniature electrical circuits that are safe to be worn by a person. UniSA researcher from the FII, Associate Professor Drew Evans said the technology was a "game changer" and could provide one of the safest methods to bring people and their smart devices closer together.
