Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems in Germany have managed to embed a tiny micro display into a pair of glasses.
Users who wear the glasses are able to access data by moving their eye, the glasses are fitted with a tiny chip which measures 19.3 by 17 mm, behind the hinge.
Images are projected onto the eye, and the user sees the image as if they were looking at it from a distance of about one meter, by moving their eye they are able to scroll through menus, and access information.
This certainly seems pretty cool, although in the early stages of development, the scientists who developed the technology have said that it could be used by doctors and engineers, who knows one day we could all be wearing a pair of Oakley’s with one of these built in displays.
