Some of today’s virtual and augmented reality hardware is closer to science fiction than to reality. According to Mojo Vision, their smart contact lenses have a mini LED display and medical-grade microbatteries and are currently a working prototype.
The CEO of Mojo Vision, Drew Perkins, recently declared that he was the first person to experience a “on-eye” demonstration of the business’s technology. He only wears one lens at a time, and only for one hour at a time. The ultimate objective of Mojo Vision is to make two lenses function as a pair, enabling the wearer to view images in 3D, much to how VR and AR now function.

The company claims that this most recent prototype has the “world’s smallest” MicroLED display—at a tiny 0.48mm, with only 1.8 microns between pixels—an ARM processor, 5GHz radio, IMU (with accelerometer, gyro, and magnetometer), “medical-grade micro-batteries,” and a power management circuit with wireless recharging components, according to a RoadtoVR report.
Even while the technology is still far from flawless, Mojo Vision is certain that it is making progress toward creating a practical device that might receive FDA approval. To make sure users can use the Mojo lens for longer periods of time without any problems, the business aims to carry out more clinical tests. We should have these devices in our heads in around ten years, according to Perkins.
