Technology just doesn't slow down, with researchers at multiple institutions working on a new technology that will see future smart contact lenses. The team has developed "transparent, highly conductive, and stretchy mix of graphene and silver nanowires" that gets attached to an off-the-shelf soft contact lens, giving it Google Glass-like features.

The technology was tested on rabbits first, as they have similar eyes to humans and were found to be fully functional. The researchers did note that the rabbits didn't try to rub their eyes, or did they grow bloodshot during the five hours of testing. Research leader, Jang-Ung Park, a chemical engineer at the Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology said:

Our goal is to make a wearable contact-lens display that can do all the things Google Glass can do.
