Bionic contact lenses now a reality

Science fiction becomes fact when nanotechnology and microfabrication team up.

Science fiction becomes present-day reality as scientists at the University of Washington construct a micro-circuit on the surface of a contact lens, complete with LED and antenna. The development suggests a variety of future applications, from heads-up GPS displays for pilots and motorists to a bio-monitor for people with health conditions.
