Contact lenses that can interact with augmented, mixed, and virtual reality more naturally compared to headset devices. This device comprises microelectrodes located in the middle of the lenses, displaying information directly on the retina and allowing users to see data even with their eyes closed.
The lenses are embedded with a proprietary wireless protocol that connects them to a portable device similar to smartphones. The smartphone enables access to the internet in real-time and to outsource computational power. Tiny built-in batteries could last for a whole day and could be recharged at night wirelessly, while the lenses rest inside the cleaning case. With an integrated camera powered with facial recognition and behavioral monitoring methods to identify a target individual, this technology could provide personal identity, social media accounts, and real-time emotional data. Also, built-in sensors could monitor the user's glucose levels, sending real-time data to the lenses' app.
