Multitasking contact lenses

Who would have ever guessed that our contact lenses would be multitasking in a few years? It certainly beats accumulating more and more technical luggage to carry around.  I just hope that when dust blows into our eyes on a blustery day that our contact lenses won't misunderstand our blinking eyes and trigger something unintended.

A reseracher in Belgium discussed similar ideas last year and is noew partnered with a contact lens maker. See http://www.eetimes.com/document.asp?doc_id=1319742
