Samsung patents a blink-triggered contact lens camera ...

MICHAEL ZHANG, PETAPIXEL:

"We’re getting closer to being able to take pictures with cameras built directly into contact lenses. Samsung has been granted a patent in South Korea for a smart contact lens that projects images directly into the wearer’s eyeball… and which has a built-in camera that’s controlled by blinking.

"SamMobile reports that the patent filing comes on the heels of a new 'Gear Blink' trademark application that was filed by Samsung in both South Korea and the United States. It’s currently unknown whether these trademark and patent filings refer to the same thing.

"The new patent application shows that Samsung has been developing a contact lens with a tiny display, a camera, an antenna, and several sensors. It needs to be paired with an external device (e.g. a smartphone) for processing the content."
