Washington-based company Innovega is currently developing plans for new military technology that give contact lenses the ability to display information next to almost anything a soldier sees.
This Sunday in Miami, The Rock and John Cena will face off at WrestleMania XXVIII (28); a match that was over one year in the making (reminiscent of old 70’s & 80’s storylines), and is being dubbed and promoted as an Icon vs. Icon-style of match given both stars’ pop culture popularity.
