Google’s Contact Lenses with Cameras
The next piece of technology that will make you scratch you head, as in how do they do that will probably be Google contact lenses that include a built-in cameras. Known as Google Glass, they will be activated by the wearer.
Google already has Google Glass and have now filed a patent for Google Contact Lenses. They will not be voice activated, there will be a system of ‘blinking patterns’ to control the contact lenses. They also will allow the wearer to look wider than a normal set of contacts. The lenses could give the blind the ability to see certain things. The built-in camera will have the ability to process data from an image of the camera.
Just because there is a rumor of patents for the camera-contact lenses doesn’t mean they will be developed for mass sale any time too soon. Still a lot of testing needs to be done. But wouldn’t be cool?
