Samsung is exploring health and technology initiatives with its patent-pending smart contact lenses designed to provide wearers with camera-commanding and VR capabilities that can be controlled through the act of blinking. The lenses feature tiny microchips that sense the body's eye movement allowing wearers to place commands and direct the functionality of the lenses through their eyes.
The smart contacts are an alternative to glasses such as the Google Glasses as an attempt to offer more accurate gesture control. The lenses will contain a small scale camera that monitors eye movement to process and transmit the data wirelessly to gadgets such as smartphones. This could mean that tech devices such as tablets, phones and computers could possibly assume commands given through blinking rather than touch. Currently the smart contact lenses are only a patent-pending idea.
