So Cool

I would very much like to own some of this technology.

An electronic contact lens has been developed that will enable maps and videos to be beamed before the wearer’s eyes. The bionic lens has microscopic circuits fixed to a flexible plastic. The scientists who created the device say the lenses could eventually provide computer-aided vision similar to that of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s robotic character in the Terminator films. Drivers and pilots would have essential information – their speed and direction, for example – superimposed in front of their eyes, in a massive advance on the kind of “wearable displays” now available, which are spectacles that have images displayed on the lenses.

Yes please. But I would only use these powers for good, you understand.
