A prototype that can superimpose images onto the user's normal view.

Researchers at Ghent University, Belgium, have developed a curved LCD display that can be integrated within a contact lens.

The technology could eventually lead to an superimposed image projected onto the user’s normal view, similar to Google’s Project Glass but without the headgear. For cosmetic purposes, users can also change the color of their eyes in an instant, without the need to take out the contact lens.
