New Contact Lens Could Let You Shoot Lasers From Your Eyes – NewsWeek

 

Researchers have developed an ultrathin and flexible membrane, less than a thousandth of a millimeter thick, that can be placed onto a contact lens, enabling the wearer to essentially shoot lasers from their eyes.

Each membrane is able to produce a unique “barcode”—a well-defined series of laser beams in the form of sharp lines. This could have applications in identification technology as a kind of wearable security tag, according to the researchers.
