We live in a world where we embrace technology for almost everything we have in life. From floating lightbulbs to self-taught robots, our lives are becoming like what we see in sci-fi movies.
Tech-giant Sony has recently patented technology for electronic contact lens that will capture our significant memories as it happens. The lens will have electronic cameras and sensors built in. Designed to wear on one eye, the user will be able to control what the lens records with only a blink of his eyes. The procedure is fairly simple. The human body is biologically timed to blink in a duration of 0.02-0.04 seconds. The user has to increase his blinking time to more than 0.05 seconds. The sensor will detect the conscious prolonging and will activate the cameras immediately.
The lens is designed to capture both images and videos. It also comes with its own internal storage to save the content. The cameras are extremely efficient. They detect blurring motions and autocorrect it, adjust to lighting and automatically block outs the blackened images from the user’s blinking while the video is recorded.
This invention is scheduled to hit the markets in 2017. With such advanced technology on the way, we can now proudly say- the future is finally here!
