    I love the "creative journalism" again. The tests with these lenses have so far used ONE led light and tested on a rabbit. The ONE led light came on. So we are at one led light which unless you wanted a dot in your eye all day is pretty useless. The maker even said "we can work on having several led lights to perhaps show arrows". so from that all newspapers are going with "read the news in your eye very soon".
    i bet when the wright brothers were in their plane, there was a journalist sat there with the headline "cheap flights to malaga coming soon" all written up!

    I'm sure it could be switched off... but I'm also sure there will be many reading these txts as there are using mobiles at high speed. Not me though.

    Thank the gods I read that twice - first time I read it as 'hover cat', which'd be a very bad thing - what with tibbles having the ability to reach the fridge door handle...

    Only thing is, how would people know that someone's reading a text/email and is therefore distracted?
