I think in the year 2040, everybody will have nude pictures of themselves on the internet. Associated with our identities.

Lots of live porn. I like the idea, it could be the next big idea to hit the industry.

Yep. Basically anyone having sex will be a porn star and we won't mind other people watching it. The society will get used to it.

Should society in first world countries ever get that base, I think I'm going to have to expat. I'll take any third world dump over the crazed western nations.

However watching something like that if you were to record a video would be horribly nauseating. I don't even think YouTubes steady fix would be able to make an eye recording watchable to an enjoyable level.

For taking pictures or enhancing vision such as google glass works would be pretty fantastic though.

Even worse, even when you think your eye isn't moving, it's still moving. The eye is never still.

That's a good point I hadn't considered. I'm sure they'll figure out a way to stabilize it though biggrin.gif

There are other applications to this tech as well. This tech allows for changes to the way you perceive things around you. Not just recording. As the tech matures a LOT of possibilities spring up. Some for fun, others for a real positive use.
You could add a color overlay, negative colors, etc… the view the world differently, or change your eye color by altering the screen color itself. Which may sounds stupid, but you can already do it to a degree with colored contact lenses.
Now for a REAL positive use. Optics are an age old science that we have a strong degree of understanding of already. We can model optics based on a person’s vision to made the glasses and contacts needed to correct vision. Now, load that data into these lenses and you have lenses that can be made to change over time to suit your changing prescription. On top of that, it could even record data about your vision to provide feedback to your Optometrist, and adjust your prescription on the fly.

Another positive would be actual important updates and other information provided via an active HUD. You’re driving down the highway and notice traffic slowing. Your lenses sync to your gps in your phone, or discrete gps/car gps, and give you visual cues for an upcoming exit to take to avoid the backlog. Applied on a large scale this would effectively eliminate these major 2-3 hours backlogs on major highways after a wreck, or during construction. Of course, merged with smart cars, lots more possibilities arise as well. Apply night amplification sensors to the car and have sensors in the windshield to effectively ‘project’ the road in low visibility situations.

A lot of these advanced possibilities don’t rely on the lenses themselves having a ton of sensors and being ultra-advanced, so much as allowing them open communication and the ability to talk with the existing tech that DOES have these sensors and whatever else. You could have your phone on silent or vibrate and sync the Bluetooth to provide a little phone icon on your peripheral vision to indicate youre receiving a call. Maybe even shortened caller id. Why needed if on vibrate, you should be able to feel it.. I already hear someone saying that… ask a woman. Phone in purse, left on vibrate or silent… no clue what’s going on. My wife is guilty of that from time to time and misses lots of calls.

Don’t concentrate so much on all the potential negatives that ‘could’ or even will come from this tech. If we only cared about the negatives that could come from tech we wouldn’t even have cars, or most other modern tech… it’s all very dangerous lol. For those concerned about privacy with these, or Google Glass, there’s an article out there about Bill Gates (I think it was) that wants to develop something that will provide active notifications or even blurring of your face for anyone digitally recording around you.

Think outside the box folks biggrin.gif

LOL, Gates. Laughed for a full 30 seconds over that one. He's the last person on earth I'd EVER trust on matters of privacy.

I'm not willing to give up my rights for neat things.

As an optical engineer, I'll say that this is a lot more complicated than it sounds. Getting a camera into a contact is hard enough, but creating a programmably deformable lens to that scale is another thing entirely. There are deformable lenses that you can adjust the optical power of, but they're bulky, complicated systems. Just getting data loaded into the lenses doesn't change their prescription - you need to physically change their shape.

Doing that would be ridiculously hard.

Also, as far as recording data about your vision, contact lenses are on the outside of your eye. It can't tell what happens in your eye because the light hasn't hit your eye yet.

Thinking outside the box is fine, but you can't think outside the physics.
