MSNBC reports that researchers at the University of Washington have created a prototype bionic contact lense which could lead the way for a host of virtual applications.

The displays would be visible only to the wearers and could conceivably display any data, program, or entertainment that programmers can conceive of. The article goes on to suggest examples such as heads up displays for vehicles, and the like, but I think we’re all curious to know about the adult entertainment applications of putting a virtual world over your eye.

Image quality is an initial issue, however, we all have faith the ability of humanity to make things better, smaller, and faster! Besides, can you imagine just switching to infrared, a la Preditor? Sweet!
