Computer Displays Implanted Right Into Your Eye?

Ever wanted to see the way cyborgs do in the movies, with computer displays implanted right into you eye? It may not be science fiction anymore. Researchers for DARPA are developing contact lenses that allow the wearer to view virtual reality images — without a bulky helmet or goggles. Digital images are projected onto tiny full-color displays very near the eye. Wearers can focus both on objects that are close up and far away. Researchers say this could allow you to use the tiny displays while sill interacting with the surrounding environment. The end goal is to get the technology into the hands of warfighters to give them greater awareness and improve survivability.
