AR contact lenses are coming far sooner than you think. Mojo Vision is a company producing augmented reality contact lenses, that is contact lenses that you put in your eyes and that can not only fix your eye impairments, but also give you augmented vision.

For now the company is interested in building a baseline system that can be expanded later on in the future. This system should include:

  • A microdisplay to let the user see the augmentations;
  • An image sensor for seeing the surroundings and process them through computer vision (e.g. edge detection);
  • Eye-tracking sensors (accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer);
  • A battery;
  • A 5Ghz radio communication antenna to make the lens communicate with an external unit;
  • An ARM0 processor, that acts as a “traffic cop” for the data.
