Looks like the dystopia of "Minority report" is partly here. All we need now is Google mining its search history to predict crimes.

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

Also, others have put chips on plastic including contact lenses to continuously check blood glucose levels (was this Google also?)
