I just finished reading a sci fi book where the protagonist had embedded projection technology on her contact lenses, enabling her to see a heads-up display wherever she went. Coupled with this was the ability to run a Google search on whatever she was looking at.

I always thought it would be cool to be able to Google something without knowing what it is that you were looking at. After all, how much use is a dictionary for defining a word if you don’t know what the word even is? However, I put this technology farther down the timeline than the embedded contact lenses.

Well, lookee here:

Pretty impressive, even though it’s in its infancy.
