Every year, we see some sort of advancement in the display tech. From smartphones to TVs, there’s a lot happening in the display space and we can’t wait to see what comes our way in the future.
In the meantime, there’s a company called Mojo Vision, that’s showcasing what it believes in the future of display tech. A smart contact lens that acts as a display. Yes, you read that right.
So, Mojo Vision showcased a single lens that’s embedded with some circuits with a tiny dot in the center.
Mojo Vision is essentially making a smart contact lens that’ll act as a display. Obviously, the tech is nowhere close to being ready, which is why we said it’s the “future of display”. At CES (Consumer Electronics Show) this year, Mojo Vision was showing lens with some sort of text displayed in a loop.
The company says there is a ton of text info that can be displayed. You can see things like time, date, health data, heart rate, and more. You can also read messages from your friends. It sounds very similar to the smart glasses, but except in this case, it’s a lens.
Besides, it also says they’re still working to make smart contact lens a true solution. They want the product to be so good that it’s ready to enter the market as something that people can buy and wear it on a daily basis. That makes sense, but we’re not entirely sure if/ when that’ll happen.
However, imagine a world in which you’re wearing just a contact lens to consume the media. No additional devices required whatsoever. Heck, you don’t even need a smartphone or a pocket device. It could be as simple as talking to a digital assistant and getting things projected on the lens.
It’s certainly the kind of cyberpunk world we want to live in, but it could be many years away from now.
