I love Sci-Fi (Rainbows End). With this contact lens, we're one small step closer to a fully augmented reality.
I’m not allowed to read science fiction. I get too giddy with the possibilities that are nearly available now! Rainbows End is a perfect example. I loved Rainbows End, but I immediately wanted to start creating clothing that could interpret muscle twitches into text messages. But then work got in the way. It’s probably better to let the professionals do their work than my hacking…
But another technology of the book that seemed even further into the future recently popped up. Contact lenses that can overlay information onto the eye are a simple enough idea to write about. Augmented reality sounds fabulous, but I know there’s a ton of mechanical, electrical, and biological problems to overcome to actually get this sci-fi technology working.
