This is very exciting in terms of the possibilities it opens for the future. Some very legitimate concerns (cooling, focus, etc.) have been noted, but those can and will be solved. In this instance, it looks like the toughest part has now been done while the other parts, which will require more innovation, still remain. I think we will see versions of this adapted for both military and consumer use.

The system must be designed so that the image on the nearby surface appears in focus as the user adjusts their external vision focus to different distances. Is it so close that the minor changes in eye focus don't substantially affect this image?

This is perfect for some military staff drone who the government does not care about the health and welfare of, but as a consumer product it is alarming. The eye is poorly cooled due to lack of circulatory system density that is found in other areas of the body, and it is more vulnerable to electromagnetic radiation. Already, data from the relatively small amount of scientific research being done that asks the hard questions of EMR without industry bias, is finding significantly increased levels of eye cancer in mobile phone users. Expect this to rise exponentially with transmitters at the proximity of a contact lens. The lack of collaboration between IT and biology has no clearer an example than right here, and we will, like mobile phone EMR, be suffering for it.

Integrating a display onto the eyes and then sensors elsewhere on the body leads to endless possibilities. I am reminded of the Terminator cyborg, and the immense amount of data it could "see".

This is indeed amazing technology which will likely bring a while new level to 3D movie. What kind of application do you envision by leverage the greatest of the technology? On the other hands, safety is a great concern like the article said. Thermal burning is among the most. Any long term effect towards the eyes of the audience is another.

Today morning while browsing through a local newspaper, this news was caught in my eyes. It is amazing to see this group of researchers made something possible, which seemed impossible to do. So nothing seems impossible now! We could be able to watch TV just by wearing a pair of contact lenses...can't believe still! Kudos to the team!!

This is really a good technology breakthrough in the direction of what is being touted for many years as Wearable computers. With the image directly appearing on retina the perception will be much better . This like those tiny earphones used in years which give a much better and natural hearing experience compared to the music blared out by the outside speakers

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
