"Too close for comfort" may describe your experience watching anything unpleasant if it's through these cutting-edge LED Contact Lenses. University of Washington researchers have managed to implant semitransparent red and blue LED lights within contacts that will wirelessly (thank god) be able to receive and display data in sharp visual images and video.

With work underway for adding green light-emitting diodes to these innovative LED Contact Lenses, science and technology may conceivably bring TV to your eyeballs -- talk about convenience! The best part about it is that you'll never miss any action since a blink may only reinforce the picture.
