Here are a couple of real-life (if speculative and fanciful) glimpses into the Uglies universe.
First this one . . .
What is that? A special? A pretty with some fairly heavy flash tattoo action?
Nope. It’s a Claritin makeup ad.
And check this out . . .
And eyescreen? Well, yeah, sort of.
Implanting a micro-camera directly into the eyeball may be a future solution for restoring sight to people with damaged vision, according to this patent application. The camera could be charged wirelessly, and communicate directly with a chip implanted at the back of the eye, so very little external hardware would be needed.
It’s from an article over at Gizmodo about installing a camera into the eye. So it wouldn’t just be an eyescreen, delivering data into the visual field, but also a camera, taking in real-world information to pass onto the visual cortex.
Maybe it’s not working technology yet, but it’s far along enough for a patent application. (Not that people wait very long for that these days, but still.)
Anyway, I thought I’d share those images with you. Working too hard on Leviathan to blog much. Sorry!
Update: The Claritin ad was sent to me by Tali (short of Natalia) Eldering. Thanks, and sorry I forgot to mention that the first time!

I love that make-up ad! It looks a lot like the flash tatooes on the cover of Specials!
omg the eyescreen look is so pretty-making!!!(wow, i sound like a bubble head) i want one, hopefully they’ll be in my lifetime 🙂
This girl named Gilian is perfect for Tally!!! She looks just like how I picture her in my mind!
Wow! The eye screen is totally bubbly! It’s so pretty! (Athough it is a tad bit scary. How do they place it on your eye? *shivers* )
Still. So cool!
GOD i want that tattoo!!!!!!!! I want it sooo badly! is it possible to get a flash tat that looks like that anywhere? im also getting manga contact lenses in about a month. [:
im so excited! as soon as i leave school today im buying bogus to bubbly no doubt.
I was scanning something else about this on another blog. Interesting. Your linear perspective on it is diametrically contradicted to what I read to begin with. I am still contemplating over the diverse points of view, but I’m tipped heavily toward yours. And irrespective, that’s what is so good about advanced democracy and the marketplace of ideas online.
some truly superb blog posts on this website , regards for contribution.
Thanks with this information … I’m already doing some of these suggestions but there’s lots of others that are new to me.
This is so cool!!!! thamks Scott-la!!!
