A prototype contact lens developed at the University of Washington (USA) and Aalto University (Finland) allows you to transmit information on the user’s eyes. The study demonstrated the ability of the lenses and their safety was published in last Tuesday (22) in the “Journal of Micromechanics and Microengenharia.”
For now, the lenses have the ability to transmit only one pixel of information, but the researchers see this as proof that it is possible to produce similar products that have the ability to transmit multiple pixels.
According to the IOP, responsible for publishing the journal in which the experiment was published, the device can transmit visual information about the real world, before the eyes of people.
Among the uses of lenses are for the transmission of e-mails and text messages, and the use of navigation systems and games. The researchers also reported that the lens can be
