While DSLR technology is becoming more accurate by the day, the Iris Camera does what no current model can: capture what you truly see through an eye-operated lens.

Designed by Royal College of Art graduate Mimi Zou, the Iris Camera is maneuvered using the movement of the human eye. When the operator blinks, the device snaps the image ahead and as they squint, the lens adjusts focus. DSLR cameras are designed to operate like the human eye, thus this design takes the process even closer to the real deal. Biometric technology allows the camera to remember and identify the distinctive patterns individual to each human eye.

The camera is also equipped with Wi-Fi capabilities and tagging implements, which allow users to quickly connect with their friends digitally. The Iris Camera is yet another great example of how technology and humans are growing closer together. Stats for Eye-Operated Lenses Trending: Older & Average
