Researchers build computer monitor into contact lens

It's only one pixel, but it gets the image and power wirelessly, and didn't hurt the rabbit

I'm no expert on HD development and resolution, but I believe one pixel is significantly below the standards for most displays. ThinQ_ calculated the resolution is 150,000 times worse than an average smartphone display and 2.074 million times worse than a 1920x1080 HD monitor.

The experiment wasn't to produce HD, though; it was to prove the concept of both wireless display and wireless power transmission to something so small.

In the next version of the contact-lens system the team will try to produce a multi-pixel display and, eventually, one with definition high enough that it would be worthwhile testing in humans.
