Smart Contact Lenses: The Next Frontier in Augmented Reality

Mojo Vision, a California-based company that is developing augmented reality (AR) smart contact lenses, has conducted the first human trial of its technology. 

The company's CEO, Drew Perkins, became the first person to wear the contact lenses and shared his experience in a blog post.Perkins wrote that he was able to interact with a compass to find his bearings, view images, and use an on-screen teleprompter to read a quote. He also said that he felt like he was "experiencing the future of invisible computing."The smart contact lenses are equipped with a micro display, a battery, and a number of sensors.

The display is capable of projecting bright text, rich graphics, and even video content. The battery is designed to last for an entire day, and the sensors track the user's eye movements to ensure that the AR imagery is displayed correctly.Mojo Vision says that it plans to conduct additional human trials in the coming months. 

The company also plans to open up its platform to app developers, who will be able to create new applications for the smart contact lenses.The development of smart contact lenses is a major breakthrough in the field of AR. These lenses have the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with the world around us. They could be used for a variety of applications, such as navigation, gaming, and education.

Mojo Vision is not the only company working on smart contact lenses. Google and Sony are also developing similar technologies. However, Mojo Vision is the first company to conduct a human trial of its smart contact lenses. This suggests that Mojo Vision is leading the way in the development of this technology.It is still too early to say when smart contact lenses will be available to the public. However, the progress that Mojo Vision has made is a significant step towards making this technology a reality.
