DARPA is set to get the first set of new iOptik contact lenses that it will test to see if the lenses can provide more situational awareness to soldiers. The lenses have dual filters that allow the eye to focus on a HUD that is close to the eye and the normal environment that is far from the eye.
The lenses will be able to overlay data on targets on soldiers normal vision and provide other waypoints and points of interest. The HUD is apparently displayed onto a normal sunglasses or goggles. The company who makes the lenses also notes parent testing with the FDA and the technology will come to average consumers as well.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
