The New Designer Contact Lens Craze - Where Will It Lead?

I didn't think these kind of contact lenses were possible but I already see where this is all headed.  When the masses get comfortable with these trendy designer contacts, the manufacturers will begin putting computer chips in them so people can access wireless devices using the lenses as monitors.  People will no longer need hand held devices and will likely even be able to control the computer devices of the future with their thoughts.  They're already working on computers that respond to people's thought commands. So there you have it, this is most likely the next wave of computers.

This first contact above is from Christian Dior called The Dior Eyes that are currently being released in Europe. - Link

Keep your ball on the eye!  German optician Stephanie Berndt shows off a soccer ball contact lens in Munich. The lens is paired with a German flag lens in a set that sells for $54.  (Link)




These seem like special honeymoon evening wear lenses. 

"Designer Anthony Mallier from India has created ‘Sparkle' contact lenses to make your eyes “Sparkle like they've never sparkled before.” Imagine having tiny Swarovski crystals beaming out of your eyes? Sounds insane but at the same time hot, the Swarovski crystals surrounds the edges of the lenses to create that “sparkle”." (Link)



For the less sophisticated lens wearer, here's good ole Mickey Mouse contact lens.  Have people really lost their minds and souls to this kind of blatant corporatism? Imagine a company's logo! What if employees had to wear their company's logo to work?  (Link)
 





For people who want to look like reptiles and cats. (Link)

 
 

Nike MaxSight contact lenses are very functional, but also very weird. Each one is designed for a different sport; this one is red and is designed for cyclists to reduce the road glare from the sun. (Link)
 
Let's just hope corporations don't get funny ideas like using people's eyeballs to advertise to a person they're speaking with based on their key words in conversations.  Society's going nuts, there's no doubt about it.   I'm burnt out on all the hand held gadget obsession happening, just imagine what people will be like 10 years from now with their new computer eyeball equipment?
