AR Contact Lenses... the future is NOW!

There may come a time in the future where just looking at something will give you all the information you need... Turns out, American and Finnish researchers at the University of Washington are currently working on a these contact lenses that will give us all Terminator vision will project a display onto our retinas giving us all the info and augmented reality data that we need. 
We may be years from that actually happening, but until then the research is currently being tested on rabbits. 
The lenses in testing now have a very low resolution of only one pixel. The researchers think that the resolution will improve over time and that someday we could all be using these lenses for navigation, reading news, email, and maybe watching video.
