Eye phone! The contact lens that can receive your text messages
By Mark Prigg | DailyMail.co.uk
It may sound like something out of a sci-fi film, but reading text messages off contact lens in the eyes could soon be a reality - bringing a whole new meaning to the term íinstant messagingí.
Scientists have developed a new technology that allows electronic messages sent from mobile phones to be directly projected on to contact lens placed in the recipientís eyes.
The spherical curved LCD display, created by Belgian researchers at Ghent University, handle projected images using wireless technology.
The lensí capability were demonstrated by scientists who showed a dollar sign being projected on to the lens.
It is a step towards ífully pixelated contact lens displaysí with the same detail as a TV screen which could completely transform the way we communicate.
íNormally, flexible displays using liquid crystal cells are not designed to be formed into a new shape, especially not a spherical one,í said Jelle De Smet, the main researcher on the project.
íThus, the main challenge was to create a very thin, spherically curved substrate with active layers that could withstand the extreme molding processes,Ē he said.
íMoreover, since we had to use very thin polymer films, their influence on the smoothness of the display had to be studied in detail.
íBy using new kinds of conductive polymers and integrating them into a smooth spherical cell, we were able to fabricate a new LCD-based contact lens display.í
