Comments on Innovega IOptik Micro-Display Contact Lenses
Interesting new take on getting us our lightweight, unobtrusive augmented reality displays. (Read the complete story)

"“Over the past month we have demonstrated a fully functional contact lens that sharpens the wearer’s view of their environment (using traditional correction techniques) and at the same time delivers wide field of view, high resolution video from a ½ inch diagonal panel that our OEM customers will ultimately wrap into their stylish eyewear” said Steve Willey, Innovega CEO. “On a parallel track, we have taken steps to finalize our launch platform and at this time believe it will deliver fully transparent, HD, 3D, ultra-widescreen video”. The Innovega CEO added that, “this seems to be the right design point as we look into the future of personal media applications”. From Innovega Breaks the Mobile Media Bottleneck."

"So we would have to use contact lenses AND Glasses to get this system to work?! Wake me up when it's one OR the other!"

"I wonder how the contacts effect normal vision, i.e. do you need to insert them each time you watch a screen, or can you wear them while going about your daily life."

"Yes, Erik, I think you're supposed to wear both. The intent of the system is to create an actual device that is affordable; I'm waiting to see if it actually pans out in the marketplace."
