Future woman with cyber technology eye panel concept
Many researchers are currently working on the development of connected contact lenses. Indeed, the development of intelligent contact lenses has been of interest to scientists for many years. Whether Sony, Samsung or Google, they are all filing numerous patents on these technologies.
The Mojo Vision team presented the first drafts of their work at CES 2020. The team succeeded in integrating a 14,000 pixels/inch mini screen into a contact lens. The accessory is also equipped with a wireless system, image sensors and motion sensors.
The lens works through a wireless connection, but the team would like to integrate the battery into the device. At the moment their connected lens requires a small external pack, which provides the necessary power.
Indeed, for this man-machine interface, autonomy is a real challenge.
French researchers have succeeded in developing a micro-battery of 0.75 cm² and stretchable up to 70%. It can be integrated into a lens. All that remains is to make it transparent using materials such as graphene. Google and the American army are very interested in this innovation.
Mojo Vision’s lens is capable of broadcasting text information or highlighting objects or people around the wearer. For the moment, this team has not yet integrated eye tracking technology, but is working on it.
The next step will be to integrate a Wi-Fi sensor into the lens. Once this link to the Web or a computer is established, all kinds of data could be available directly on the lens. The lens will be able to send what is seen to a computer, and receive augmented reality information in return.
These contact lenses could have biomarkers, be able to measure blood glucose levels, give a visual acuity greater than 10 out of 10 because they will be able to zoom in or allow blind people to discern their environment.
In the not so distant future these lenses could professionally equip a lot of people such as doctors, pilots, architects…
In our everyday life when visiting a museum, passing in front of a painting, a commentary could appear on the work, they could integrate our routes to walk in a city, translate a text, connect us in videoconference …
In short, they will help us in our daily life.
