    When they debut these for consumer use, I'll be the first in line to buy, just so I can be the first person to say 'My Vision is Augmented.'

    I probably wouldn't get this, seeing I don't really trust these kind of things in my eyes. Maybe far into the future with lots of studying upon this, would I get them.

    Anyone else thinking with a little motion tracking, these could overlay a image on your wife making her young and sexy forever?

    While this may be true now in future we will see humans being alot more artificially enchanced then they are now, its called evolution.

    By 2300 I can see Transhumanism on large scale (if it make it till then).

    To be honest, unless this adds anything particularly major (which my guess is that it won't for the majority), I'll be without sticking contacts in my eyes. I've been wearing them for the last 6 years, and can't wait until I can afford laser surgery.
  12. Cool! Now we can watch Ads even in our sleep ;))

    When I played through Deus Ex HR I killed every person who said something along those lines. People standing in the way of progress due to fear mongering.
  14. meh i think it would have been better if they tried to embed them in to something like glasses that people wear all the time now (vision correcting glasses ...3d glasses etc..) would have been much easier and less hazardous for the user. I mean most people get jittery when putting some contact lenses in their eyes and now contact lenses with circuitry?
  15. Poor rabbits....
  16. Why not start with eyeglasses first? Seems like that would be easier. You could incorporate the power source into the frames. Plus you wouldn't, you know, destroy your eyeballs from the heat emitted from an electronic contact lens.
  17. What happens when someone overpowers your signal with other information?

  20. It's called the Singularity. It was coined by Ray Kurzweil. It is the point where humans and machines become one and we cease to be completely human. There was an article in Time magazine about him and there is also a movie. Pretty interesting stuff and at times boring. He is a very weird guy, buy everything he has protected about technology so far has come true.
