LCD Embedded Contact Lenses: Display projected in front of your eyes


Contact Lenses LCD
 Technology is rapidly changing with latest gadgets making life much more easier. While projection images have always been we all wished, scientists at Ghent University’s Centre of Microsystems Technology have made it real. The LCD Based Contact lenses technology has just dawned.

LCD lense dollar sign

The Researchers have been successful in making a curved LCD Panel for the lenses which can be sent images with wireless connection. Currently the panel only shows display in monochrome and the wearer cant see the image on it mainly because the eye cant focus on very close objects. Researchers have the view that with time this technology will evolve into complete panels.
De Smet, chief researcher suggested,
“for specific applications it may be interesting to show images such as road directions or projecting text messages from our smart phones straight to our eye."

The lenses can be a major change in the way we use technology and gadgets right now. With most gadgets in our hands and with touch sensing, these lenses can grow into complete Laptops or computers with eye control and full integrated display. This of course would require miniaturizing of all the circuitry which is not happening anytime soon

Other usage might be in the medical field where it might be used as a gadget to aid people with weak eyesight and road directions and obstacle warnings.

All this excitement on one sight, this lense might never turn into really due to two main reasons. One being the source of power required to run it esp. with such a small surface area ( most of it display) and secondly that it is after all a contact lens. While contact lenses provide much more style and usage friendliness, it can cause serious problems to the eye if it gets damages.

  2. Aside from the increased functionality, the card operates like a standard credit, debit or ATM card touch lcd monitor. The idea is to provide a two-in-one device for users who have to carry a second authentication device for sensitive transactions.
