The rapid adoption, growth, and spread of the Internet of Everything (IoE) is inevitable. But even as we see massive growth in IoE, we must also acknowledge and work to mitigate the considerable risk associated with these advances.

First 3D LED printer could print heads-up-display contact lenses (CNET)

November 23, 2014

Here's a hypothetical question: would you rather have a head-up display on glasses or a contact lens?

If you answered "contact lens", the bad news is that you may be waiting some time. But the good news is that it just got a little more feasible, with the invention of the world's first 3D printer that can print LEDs.

The team, led by Michael McAlpine at Princeton University's McAlpine Research Group, has successfully used its printer to 3D-print quantum dot LEDs -- LEDs that are considered the next step up from OLED. QLEDs shine brighter and with purer colour, at a lower power consumption rate, using cadmium selenide nanocrystals. They're also ultrathin, flexible and transparent -- like, for instance, contact lenses.
