I’m in Spain at the moment with Brother for a conference. I’ve just seen a demo of their prototype retinal imaging technology. The technology, fitted into an ordinary pair of glasses, projects high-resolution and 3D images straight onto the retina using low-light, targeted projection. It is very very loosely based on inkjet print head technology.
Sounds very Star Trek I know but it is real and it works. Nowhere near ready for commercialisation as all the backend technologies still need to be scaled down, and there are massive power issues to address (think Tesco trolley full of batteries at the moment), but nonetheless – Cool!
I wonder if I could hook a video iPod up to it? It would make watching movies at work a lot less obvious!
