Mojo Vision could be the first manufacturer to release a smart contact lens. Some rumors claimed that it could be unveiled sooner than expected. However, the tech firm confirmed that the new technology could still take a few years before it is shipped to other parts of the world.
On the other hand, Mojo Vision claimed that its upcoming smart contact lens could have 14,000 pixels per inch. This feature will be integrated into a tiny display, which has the size of a sand grain. The company added that the display would beam directly into the fovea of the user's eyes.
Forbes explained that your fovea is the tiny part of your eye's center. It also has the greatest concentration of retinal cones, which are your natural photoreceptors. Here are other features and capabilities that could be offered by the upcoming smart contact lens to give you more idea.
Mojo Vision smart contact lens' possible features
The contact lens manufacturer said that its upcoming product could pack some features and other capabilities that are not available on the normal eye specs yet. One of these is the 70,000 pixels per half-millimeter display.
On the other hand, Mojo Vision said that it could integrate the following capabilities:
- Computer vision
- Augmented reality
- Thin-film solid-state battery
- High-end micro-LED display
- Inertial measurement
- Broadband radio for communications, sensors
However, the contact lens manufacturer didn't provide any specific method that would help integrate these features in a tiny contact lens. Experts and other analysts explained that if Mojo Vision wants to achieve a smart contact lens that has all these features, the need to develop an external compute pack.
Is it better than Apple's alleged AR eye specs?
Right now, it is hard to conclude whether Mojo Vision's upcoming product will be better than Apple's alleged AR eye specs since none of the companies have released their products yet for testing. However, Kuo, a popular Apple analyst, claimed that the company's alleged contact lens might not have independent computing power and storage.
On the other hand, MacRumors reported that some speculations also claimed that it could arrive in 2030, which is one advantage that the manufacturer could have against Mojo Vision.
