Virtual Reality Contact Lenses
Contact lenses that enhance normal vision with megapixel 3D panoramic images are being designed by scientists using military funding.
Innovega’s contact lenses could effectively generate displays with a screen size “equivalent to a 240-inch television, viewed at a distance of 10 feet.”
Moreover, by projecting slightly different pictures to each eye, the display can generate the illusion of 3D. “You get full 3D, full HD, fully panoramic images,” Willey said.
Although some might balk at using contact lenses, “100 million people already do, including 20 percent of the key target group of 18- to 34-year-olds, those involved in gaming and using smartphones,”
Eliminates the VR helmet and 3D glasses, apparently.
