Contact lens wearers can now get the superhuman natural power to get into their surrounding even better than the humans. The new technology makes it possible to focus at multiple distances at the same time, without interrupting the interaction of human eye to it’s projected image.
Naturally human eyes can only focus on the object at the singular distance and neglects the background or foreground objects — depending on the subject which is on focus. But the new technology makes it possible for the contact lens user (with new technology of course) to keep an eye on a projected image while their surrounding scenery can also be looked at — resulting in superhuman vision.
The contact lenses, however, will let two images be viewed at the same time. The projected image goes through the retina display, while the background image is still visible.
While we are all waiting for the Google to launch their “Google glasses” this year, Pentagon is planning something different. Pentagon has ordered a pile of contacts, called iOptik. It recently ordered a supply from Innovega, the company that makes them. The Pentagon will reportedly use the technology to develop display screens akin to what Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character wore in the movie Terminator.
In addition to contact lenses, the company also makes glasses with projection images in the lenses, which it showed off at CES 2012. With this technology, the company said, glasses and lens wearers could view content from their mobile devices while still looking at the scenery around them. The technology will be available to the public in 2014.
Futurist tech has been used to address a number of health concerns, as well as expand on the human body’s natural capabilities.
