TV in your Contacts! Soon!

Telegraph- Futurologist Ian Pearson speaks out on the new tv-in-your-eyes contact lenses, projected to come out in as soon as 10 years time. Pearson told the Daily mail that sets would be powered by the viewers body heat, and that the channel could be changed by voice command or with a wave of the hand.

"Emotional viewing" could be another development in television technology, according to a report commissioned by the technology retailer Comet.
A "digital tattoo" fitted to the viewer would pick up on the feelings of characters on screen and create impulses causing them to feel the same way.

"We could even get to the point where we'll be able to immerse ourselves in a football game, making it feel like you're running alongside your favourite player or berating the ref," the report added.

Miriam Rayman, of the Future Laboratory consultancy, which compiled the report, said the basic technology needed for the developments already existed.
She said: "The technology is getting smaller and smaller and people are trying to work out how to make it more immersible. They are trying to bring it closer and closer to the eye."
