LED mounted in a contact lens for possible virtual / augmented reality displays
Every so often, internet news aggregator sites run a story about a research group that put an LED into a contact lens, then inserted it into a rabbit's eye. I figured that I would try the same thing, but put the lens into my own eye. I accomplished this by laminating a coil of wire and an 0402 surface-mount LED between two ordinary soft contact lenses. I was hoping the lenses would stick to each other, but they did not, so I ended up fixing the edges together by pinching the plastic together with hot tweezers. This held well enough to capture a minute of video with the LED illuminated in my eye. For video purposes, I mounted the LED facing outward. An actual VR/AR display would have the LED facing inward.

Well, you wont catch me putting that thing in my Eye!:O But, he really knows his Electronics!:) I wonder how bright that LED Flashing was to him? He didn't mention that. But, I don't thing I could handle the Flashing... My eyes are very sensitive to bright lights. Heck the little Blue LED's in many Electronic Products, these days. Blind me!:O Great Work though...
