Read Books on Contact Lens?

Don’t blink you might miss something.
This CNN article says researchers at the University of Washington and Finland's Aalto University have developed a prototype of a contact lens that would project digital images onto the retinas of its wearer. According to the story, the researchers published in the Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering, says, contact lenses that display digital information are the holy grail for this genre of reality-bending work.   Ultimately, projected displays from contact lenses can replace all the other screens we look at.
Those of you sorry to give up books for screens might soon be able to lament the loss of those screens as well!
