I occasionally wear contact lenses. Today, the news mentioned that there is a company working on “Smart Lenses.” Being a geek, I had to look further into it.
Here’s the news piece.
Sure, there are medical uses, like checking blood sugar, or even dispensing medicine. I am far more interested in this: “Perhaps the most amazing idea for a smart lens is this one: Tiny LEDs built into the lens overlay images into your field of vision. The idea is that one day you would be able to stream health data, the internet, even television, right in front of your eyes.”
The other neat thing I’ve stumbled across tonight is the Lion’s Mane Jellyfish.
“The Lions Mane Jellyfish is the largest jellyfish in the world. They have been swimming in arctic waters since before the dinosaurs (over 650 million years ago) and are among some of the oldest surviving species in the world.
The largest can come in at about 6 meters and has tentacles over 50 meters long. Pretty amazing when you think these things have been swimming around for so long.
They have hundreds of poisonous tentacles that it used to catch passing by fish. it then slowly drags in it’s prey and eats it.”
