The possibility of being able to read email with digitally produced contact lenses is unbelievable, but the Bionic Lenses by University of Washington proves that such creations are soon on their way.

A team from the University of Washington in Seattle is working on prototype lenses that could project emails right before your eyes. The lenses would have a thin layer of metal along with LEDs. The device is feasible and safe but there are a few elements yet to be adjusted. As of now, the lenses only work within few centimeters of wireless battery.

It is possible that users could bring out real time data from the Internet like road directions or enter virtual video gaming zones. If this is the future of lenses, digital data intertwined in everyday products could possibly change the lifestyle of the next generation.
