Scientists have taken the first step toward creating digital contact lenses that can zoom in on distant objects and display useful facts.
For the first time, engineers have installed an electronic circuit and lights on a regular contact lens.
"Looking through a completed lens, you would see what the display is generating superimposed on the world outside"
The prototype they created does not actually light up or display information. But it proves that it is possible to build an electronic lens that is safe to wear and doesn't obstruct vision.

Ever see the movie Barb Wire? If you remember the plot centered on a pair of contact lenses that would allow someone to beat a retnal eye scan. I bet there are lenses like that too.
