Mojo Vision CEO Wears Micro-LED Display Contact Lens

One day, the idea of a "contact lens display" may prove to be the best way to use augmented reality (AR), but it's a very challenging endeavour. One business attempting to make that happen is MojoVision, whose CEO displayed a prototype Mojo lens over his eye.

A contact lens with all the necessary circuitry to drive the 0.5mm display's 1.8 micron micro-pixels is called the Mojo Lens. Its effective visual resolution is now constrained by the screen's modest size, but that could change in the future.

Even in broad daylight and while your eyes are closed, you can see what's on the screen.

Data, including image data, is exchanged back and forth via 5 GHz radio communication between the lens and the computer. Although Mojo Vision claims that communications have reduced latency, their responsiveness is still unknown.

An accelerometer tracks eye movements in order to steady the image in the user's field of view. When updating the generated image, the computer can account for eye movements thanks to this motion data.

When using Mojo Vision, orders can be issued by staring at anything and staying on target for a brief period of time. The XR (eXtended Reality) headset's UI is similar to that of many AR apps.

This is a crucial step in creating a contact lens that is entirely wireless. According to the manufacturer, a "medical-grade micro-battery" powers the Mojo Lens.

Although this is a technical accomplishment on the level of science fiction, one must worry about the image quality, the field of view's size, and the conditions.

A high-resolution display would be good because it would be beneficial for many different XR applications.

However, a lot of people prefer not to have anything to watch, particularly when it comes to electronics and drums. Even if it worked perfectly right now, I think it would take years and a killer app before it became widely used.
