Google might have got a patent back in 2014, and then Sony in 2016, but scientists at the University of California San Diego have actually created a prototype contact lens that lets you “zoom” when you double-blink. Well, to be more accurate, it only functions when a specially made rig double blinks, but still, it’s a start.
Eons ago (at least in technological terms) Google were out to change the world with their Google glass wearable tech. One of the most prominent objections to that tech was people being afraid of being spied upon. Google Glass now lies at the bottom of Google’s failed-projects cemetery.
Sony is out to bring this concept to life only taking the glass away. And we know how bringing dead things to life seems like a good idea, but really never is…
The concept that Sony patented puts a full camera inside a contact lens.
Google Glass is on public sale today for one day only. And by that, I mean that the development model with software specifications assigned two years ago is on sale today. They haven’t even fully implemented their Glass technology into the world of wearable consumer technology, yet, and Google already has their mind on the next move. A patent’s just been released that details plans by the company to invent camera technology for contact lenses.
Oh, eat your hearts out, NSA. Eat your hearts out.
