Eyeglass-Mounted ebook display

It doesn't limit itself to ebook use, but with the ability to change pages with simple eye movements, it would surely make an ereading device that Sherman Alexie would absolutley have an embolism over!*

The upshot is that the user sees a high-resolution, high-contrast image that appears to be floating a meter away, and by merely gesturing with the eyes--such as flicking to the right to change a page, or scanning downwards to scroll through a list--simple interface controls can be carried out.

... since they're promoting the tech as being small, ergonomic, energy-efficient, and potentially cheaper than existing HMDs, it's possible they'll find their way into consumer products for a whole host of purposes.

So.... if you get something in your eye and begin to blink rapidly - you can inadvertantly jump chapters ahead?
A wink's as good as a ......... ?
