Samsung creates contact lenses with built-in camera that projects images directly into the eye

Samsung has been granted a patent for contact lenses that project images directly into the eye. The patent, awarded in South Korea, includes a contact lens equipped with a display, a camera, an antenna, and several sensors that detect movement.

The contact lens will use the antenna to link up to a smartphone, which processes the image sent into the eyes.

HOW IT WORKS

  • The contact lenses will be equipped with a display, a camera, an antenna, and several sensors that detect movement.
  • The system will use the antenna to link up to a smartphone, which processes the image sent into the eyes.
  • The lens can then send images onto the wearer’s eye and record their surroundings.
  • Meanwhile, the sensors will be used to control the images using movements such as blinks.
  • The lens can then send images onto the wearer’s eye and record their surroundings.
  • The lens also has wireless capabilities allowing it to link to a smartphone, which can be used to process data and give the user audio commands.

Google also has two patents for smart contact lenses, which may be closer to reality. In 2014, it signed a deal with health giant Novartis to produce its ground-breaking smart contact lenses.

The two said they would produce the first glucose monitoring lens for diabetics and one to treat farsightedness, it was announced.
