From the article:

Researchers have developed new contact lenses that contain circuits, LEDs, and a “powder” of electrical components that can enable an average human being to possess superhuman vision.

The contact lenses would allow images to be displayed in a person’s vision, superimposed on the real world.

According to the researchers, from the University of Washington, some of the possible applications include the following:

  • zooming in on distant objects
  • get useful facts to pop up in your field of view
  • create virtual cross-hairs
  • holographic driving control panels
  • surfing the Web
  • visual aids for vision-impaired people
  • immersive video games

I know this has been all over the web a couple of times now but thid is something I really want..
