New Technology Samsung Has Patented an Augmented Reality Smart-Contact Lens

Google Glass perhaps didn’t accept the earth-shattering response the company – and world – had expected. However, a offer that Samsung appears to have in the works could be the augmented reality wearable tech everybody is holding out for.
It looks like the Korean tech giant has been idea about creating the world’s first "smart" contact lenses, able to take photographs with the blink of an eye, technology blog Sammobile reports.
New Technology Samsung Has Patented an Augmented Reality Smart-Contact Lens
Samsung has filed a patent in South Korea for a smart contact lens built-in with a camera and image display. In addition, it will feature sensors that can control certain functions simply by blinking. The concept design require an accompanying smartphone to do a number of of the leg-work, which would be wirelessly connected to the lenses.
The patent request says that the plan was originally applied for in September 2014, but has only recently been publically published. The patent, along with 29 pages of Korean text, features some early on blueprint design of the lens, which you can check out below.
Don’t hold your hopes up too high, though. A patent is not a definitive go-ahead for any creation and is often used to stop a rival company running with the idea. It’s also not shown on the patent request if it has even been decided. Google also has two similar patents that have been collecting dust for 2 years.
Nonetheless, it’s exciting times for technology. Who knows, maybe our chip-eyed grandkids will one day laugh at a time when our phone wasn't stuck onto our- eyeballs.
