While most people want huge HDTVs for their living rooms, dens, basements and man-caves, there are others who think size is all relative.

There are some who prefer the teeniest, most compact gadgets, like those itsy-bitsy cell phones that would get lost in a pocket. So for all those teeny-gadget lovers, here’s the TV for you.

OK, well, it’s not an actual TV. But researchers at the Future Laboratory believe the future of television is in contact lenses, reports TV Tattle.

Similar to those who prefer convenience and watch TV on the refrigerator, or talk on the phone while in the shower, you can soon watch your favourite show via a contact lens.

The lens, which could be a reality within 10 years, would be powered by body heat. Oh, and channels could be changed by voice commands or a wave of the hand. Presto, indeed.

“You will just pop it into your eye in the morning and take it out at the end of the day,” said Ian Pearson, a futurologist who advises companies on new technologies.

While this may sound farfetched and a little too James Bond, Future Laboratory’s Miriam Rayman, who compiled the report, said that it already exists in a way.

“The technology is getting smaller and smaller and people are trying to work out how to make it more immersible.”

Would you wear TV contact lenses? [email protected]

NO WAY O_o I want oh but there'd probably be more car accidents? 0_o >_> I dunno.

You might say people wouldnt be so stupid as to watch tv n drive at the same time, but they drink n drive. >_> thats pretty dumb too.

Awesome! But it would probably cost a million dollars or something. And plus our eyesight would get worse.

This would be a disaster waiting to happen... Some people watch TV all the time as it is, just imagine if you could take it with you where ever you go.

This is too much, really...

Also, how would you hear it? Or even get service?

There would be lots of benefits for those who need quick accessible information like police or industrial workers. It would be like your own heads up display in that respect. So there are some benefits to this I suppose... just not as TV I say.

Sounds like this is just going to be another one of the many useless inventions. In a broader spectrum this invention will cause more harm than good.

Awesome.
