Saw this on a few news outlets touting the amazing technology from Innovega & DARPA that puts an augmented reality display right on a contact lens on the eyeball. It’s important to get the details as that’s not actually the truth: What they’ve done is create a contact lens that allows a wearer to focus on “near to eye” displays, such as their own glasses with integrated projection displays.
For DARPA’s part, Innovega is working as part of the Soldier Centric Imaging via Computational Cameras (SCENICC) program, which aims to eliminate the intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance capability gap at the individual soldier level.
You can get some good details in the video below. Still neat technology, but not quite what most people think from the headline.
