      I saw the post, and thought "Now, what's the chance that I can be the first one to make the obligatory 'if only you could see what I've seen with your eyes' post? ... probably about zero...".

    I, for one, welcome our new UV-sighted overlords.

    p.s. a google search for "I for one welcome our" has you on the first page.

    Brought to you by the same set of labs that helped developed MP3's. Interesting.

      Yeah, it's interesting until the RIAA comes after your face with a suction cup.

        I have nothing to add to this statement except for the milk that would've squirted out of my nose had I been drinking any when I read it.

      Fraunhofer is a huge network of labs in Germany. They do work in all areas of science. It's more like the NIH or the Howard Hughes Medical Institute than a monolithic organization.

    I used to work for the automation company who was trying to refine the production process of these things. Fascinating stuff.

    Hmm. I don't see any human-targeting HUD.

      Clearly the only explanation is that the people in the room with you not human at all, but skin-job impostors. Fire at will.

    I would prefer if it said "Zeiss" along the outer edge.

    cool! I've been putting off a cornea transplant for a few years now, and it looks like if I put it off for a few more I can get a neat cheap plastic one!

    Am thinking of the built-in screens in Doktor Sleepless, or even the HUDs of Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom. I approve.
