Researchers at England's Ghent University have been applying modern smartphone-specific technology to its development of 21st century contact lenses. In the school's promotional video, images are displayed across the front of the thin plastic pieces.

Professors made use of LCD display screens to stream text and pictures on the front of these contemporary contact lenses. The product is still in its preliminary stages however, and it has yet to be decided what it will be used for exactly.

The device may very well be tied to smartphone-oriented tools, exhibiting text messages and e-mails directly across the eyeball. It at the same time is appropriate for practical functions, seen in the summer as it can block harsh sun rays.
