Check out this weird contact lens with a telescope in it
Sensimed Contact Lens

I love new technology, it's the reason that I do what I do. That, and helping people with the new technology. I love helping people understand how to improve their lives and have fun with tech.

Researchers from the EPFL in Switzerland have the same idea, and they've come up with some incredible new gadgetry that will change the way you look at technology. Literally.

It's some awesome new cyborg technology: a contact lens with a built-in telescope. Why would you want this in your eye? (Besides the fact that it's very, very cool I mean.) It has a specific purpose that could treat a serious disease.

These new contact lenses were designed to help treat age-related macular degeneration (AMD). If you've picked up a magazine, a recipe card, or an eReader and had to perform the arms-out focus dance, this cool new contact lens could be for you.
