Mojo Lens: The World’s First True Smart Contact Lens.

🗣  Currently, the Mojo smart contact lens boasts:

👉 A 14,000 pixels per inch MicroLED display, the world’s smallest at with 5 millimeters in diameter, and densest with a pixel-pitch of just 1.8 microns

👉 5GH ultra-low latency radio to stream AR content

👉 ARM processor

👉 Continuous eye tracking via custom-configured accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetometers

👉 Medical-grade in-lens batteries

👉 Eye-controlled user interface

👉 Low Latency Communication

The contact lens connects with an external controller that you might wear like a necklace, where all the heavy computing happens. It uses a proprietary 5GHz radio because Bluetooth is too slow and has too high latency. And the optic includes a “teeny, tiny, reverse Cassegrain telescope like the Hubble” built into the lens. The result is eye tracking that’s a 10X improvement over anything else available today, and the ability to build an eye-controlled user interface.

“Basically, it’s all about giving you superpowers,” Mojo VP Steven Sinclair told me recently on the TechFirst podcast. “We’re building the world’s first, true augmented reality smart contact lens. So, something that you could put on your eye, see content when you want to see it, have it disappear when you’re not using it, so you look like yourself and you’re engaged in the real world.”

Interestingly, vision is only part of the plan for this smart contact lens. Other things Mojo is working on are checking the tear fluid on your eyes, measuring intraocular pressure, or checking for early onset of glaucoma. The eyes are a great platform for health sensors, Sinclair says, and that is on the menu as well as enhanced vision and data delivery via AR.
