While it’s not really related to legal issues, it certainly is a captivating idea. The Guardian reports that a University of Washington Scientist is developing a contact lens LED display that uses nanoscale circuits. If it works, the lenses may be powered by either solar or radio-frequency power transmission, and could be theoretically used to superimpose text messages, direction indicators, or even close captioning on the eye itself. Bio-compatibility is an issue. If the idea seems futuristic, readers may recall Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator character had this same set up way back in 1984. Hmm . . . it seems to me that there were some fairly recent papers on potential ocular uptake of nanoscale materials a while back. We will track this down over the next week or so. Stay tuned . . .
