After watching the talk on diffractive optics from the HaD Superconference a while back I started thinking about some next gen VR display stuffs. The usual pondering. I was looking around the interweb and seeing what sort of ideas people may have about this tech and I found Applied Science's video (opens in new tab) where he mounted an LED inside of a contact lense and then wirelessly powered it. Obviously it wasn't going to be feasible for the sci-fi HUD that we all someday dream of having, but at least it was a start. Of course, that video was made more with the idea of eye-mounted displays in mind i.e. shining light into your looking spheres. That got me thinking, what if you had light that came out of your eyeballs.
