Contact lenses of the future projects images onto eyeballs

11 Jan

The future does bring some rather interesting additions to the fore, among them include contact lenses that are capable of projecting images right on top of your retinas, according to researchers at the University of Washington who have been hard at work on super small and semi-transparent LEDs which will be integrated into existing contact lenses. To date, they managed to develop red and blue pixels, awaiting the day when they are able to figure out green ones to create full color displays. Now fret not that the images are just millimeters away from your retinas – they will still be in perfect focus, and once the display is turned off, everything else will end up being transparent. As the lenses themselves are inside your eyelids, you won’t be able to not see anything that is projected – so closing your eyes won’t work at all. Does this mean we will have to pay more to get ad-free contact lenses in the future? That is certainly open to debate.

UAE Goes For Biggest LED Display

Oil, just like undertakers, are needed no matter what kind of economic climate it is - which explains why oil rich gulf states like the UAE can still continue spending frivolously no matter what the economic climate is like. Case in point - this giant LED display that will be placed across the face of a whole building. Known as Podium, it will be the largest LED display to be embedded onto a commercial tower, spanning 33 storeys high with images on it being viewable for up to 1.5km. With Dubai being part of the desert and all, it would be nice to see solar panels erected to help power this thing, or else the city council will have a pretty huge electricity bill each month!

DirecTV Has New TiVo-powered DVR

DirecTV has plans to release a new TiVo-powered high-def DVR sometime in the second-half of next year, and it will improve upon its 2004 predecessor, the DirecTiVo, by being able to receive the DirecTV's whole gamut of digital and high-def channels. Very little is still known about the new HD TiVo DVR, other than the fact that it will "support the latest TiVo and DirecTV features and services, including TiVo's Universal Swivel Search and TiVo KidZone". It would be interesting to see whether the user interface has been improved upon compared to the sluggish predecessor. DirecTV subscribers, will you pick up this second-gen DirecTiVo when it is available?
