Samsung patent reveals smart contact lens with built-in camera

May 3, 2016

Samsung is developing smart contact lenses equipped with a tiny display, a camera, an antenna, and several sensors that detect movement and the most basic form of input using your eyes: blinking.

The display projects images directly into the eye of the wearer. An external device, a Smartphone, is needed for processing.



According to the application, Samsung is exploring on-eye navigation instructions and the ability to search online for more information based on what a user happens to be looking at in the real world. Executives do not, however, seem to have acknowledged one of the main complaints against Google Glass: that people found the idea of “Glassholes” walking around with a potentially always-on, inconspicuous camera to be creepy.



Google has previously disclosed ambitions to build a connected contact lens, although the device was pitched as a way to measure glucose levels for diabetes patients.
