Augmented reality contacts? Real!

This is very cool:

University of Washington Associate Professor of Biotechnology Babak A. Parviz describes the current state of the art , and it's pretty intense. They're trialing mockups of the lenses--which are sorta like older gas permeable lenses except with independently fabricated microcomponents like, biosensors and circuits--in bunnies' eyeballs right now, using lens with integrated metal circuits, with no problems for up to 20 minutes of wear. They're up to one LED for display now that's powered wirelessly by RF, but eventually, what's embedded in the lenses will include hundreds of LEDs to form images, and semi-transparent optoelectronics like antennas.
