These are not your ordinary contact lenses. Revealed by California-based tech startup Mojo Vision, these contact lenses utilize augmented reality (AR) to place information inside of the wearer’s eyes. The Mojo lens use 14k pixels-per-inch micro-displays to project statistics like health tracking as well as other data, such as names of places and people.
They also pack wireless radio, image-recognition tech (which it claims will be able to understand the activities you’re engaged in, so as to not disturb you when it’s not wanted), and motion sensors. Mojo calls this eyes-up experience invisible computing, a platform that enables information to be instantaneous, unobtrusive and available hands-free.
The lenses are still in development but the company is currently demonstrating a working prototype of the device and plans an early application of the product designed to help people struggling with low vision through enhanced image overlays. This application of the mojo lens is designed to provide real-time contrast and lighting enhancements as well as zoom functionality.
The future is now.
