Retinal Displays

For applications like augmented reality it makes sense to investigate ways to better get data directly into your eyes, without having to find a screen or move a smartphone around. And even for the most common interfaces it would be great to simply display the results directly to your retina. Sounds a bit obtrusive or even dangerous, but much work has been done in the area and seems to be close to delivery. At the right a simple example, I tested something similar several years ago. Can implantation be far behind? Some work in this area shown in Engadget and an article in Popsci describing work by NEC and Brother.
