Google Contact Lenses

Happy Tuesday to all. Whilst surfing the web today, I stumbled upon an article that said Google just filed a patent for a contact lens version of Google’s computer glasses released earlier this year.

The patent for these lenses sprouted a few months after Google revealed a prototype for a pair of contact lenses that would monitor the wearer’s glucose levels. From this prototype evolved what are essentially Google Glass contact lenses. These contact lenses would have the many features of Google Glass, including built-in cameras, and could potentially assist blind wearers by using the camera to process certain things within the camera’s “field of vision.” Patent Bolt’s analysis of the patent states that the contacts would not be controlled by voice as Google Glass is, but rather through a system of “unique blinking patterns.”

I don’t know much about what all Google Glass does, but to be perfectly honest, this idea freaks me out a bit. Having something literally in your face that is partially like a computer makes me feel weird. Also, the whole blinking pattern to control the lenses seems a little comical to me. I do understand that the lenses would indeed have beneficial purposes, and yes the evolution of technology is inevitable and useful, but I still feel uneasy about having some sort of version of a computer with a camera in my eyeballs.

Have a great week and thanks for reading :)
