    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] Retinal Scanning Display Projects Images On Retina[/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]A retinal scanning display was introduced by Brother of Japan this past week, a display mechanism small enough to be mounted on a pair of glasses. [/FONT]​

    [/FONT] [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The retinal scanning display irradiates the retina with low-intensity light. The user sees the afterimage of the light scanned on the retina; to put it another way, the retinal scanning display projects the image upon the user's retina. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The first time I read about this idea was in an sf novel many years ago. Frederik Pohl and Cyril Kornbluth wrote about this idea more than half a century ago in their satiric 1952 novel The Space Merchants. [/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]...soon we'll be testing a system that projects directly on the retina of the eye...
