Curved LCD Display Can be Embedded in Contact Lenses, Ghent University Study

Published: Dec 07, 2012

The Centre of Microsystems Technology, imec’s associated laboratory at Ghent University, has developed a spherical curved LCD display that can be embedded in contact lenses. The first step toward fully pixilated contact lens displays, this achievement is claimed to have potential applications in the medical and cosmetic sectors. According to a statement, imec’s display overcomes the limitations of LED-based contact lens displays, which are limited to a few small pixels, as the LCD-based technology allows the use of the entire display surface.
