Well, a flashing pixel *could* indicate a ringing TTY phone or even a doorbell.

I'm imagining an "electronic contact lense" having a very, very tiny built-in microphone, or bluetooth connection to a micro-processor somewhere.

...Seriously unhelpful. Look, there's a 4% reportable (i.e. at least moderate) chance of complications every year from wearing contact lenses and long term wear, per several studies recently, seems to thin the cornea. Any "soloution" which involves people wearing contact lenses is going to lead to an awful lot of people with eye problems.

Dataglasses which project onto the retina? Well yea, good potential afaik.
