Contact Lens Contains Embedded LCD

Who hasn’t dreamed of having heads-up display screens directly embedded into their eyes? I guess years of playing Cyberpunk 2020 and reading science-fiction novels have made this a fixture in most settings. While it won’t make readable contact lens displays feasible any time soon, it looks like scientists have actually been able to make contact lenses with embedded LCDs.

Tokyoflash Kisai Optical Illusion LCD Watch: Now You See It Now You Don’t

One of the biggest complaints that I’ve had with some of these Japanese watches is that you always have to push a button to check the time. Since Tokyoflash started working with more LCD displays, instead of only using LEDs, this problem has been somewhat solved – assuming you can make out the time. Their latest watch, the Kisai Optical Illusion, plays with diagonal lines to make you see the time.

Tokyoflash Right Angle Concept Watch Goes from Cryptic to Legible with a Flick of the Wrist

I’ve been a fan of Japanese watches for years, but there’s one problem with a lot of the ones offered by Tokyoflash: most of them aren’t easy to read, which makes them counter-intuitive in my opinion. That’s not the case of this new concept that Tokyoflash has posted to their blog. All you need to do to read the time is tilt it to the right angle.
