Weekly insights from an Entreprenuer: To spend one year as a tiger is better than to live forever as sheep

Cyber contact lenses

University of Washington EE researches are putting circuits into contacts:

Freaky, but could have a bazillion cool uses if it was actually safe and low cost.  I’m thinking something like Iron Man’s suit.

  • Portable telescope – zoom in and out
  • LED displays of warnings – hazard areas, detour routes, etc
  • Visual aids for the blind
  • Gaming – definitely gaming.  How cool would that be??
  • Traffic maps, restaurant locators, news reports
  • Heck, lets just stick the entire internet here and let me google anything on the fly and see it literally right in front of me.

Very cool.  Let me know when it works.  I want to write software for it.  :)
