Although this is apparently still in the patent stage, the smart contact lenses might hit the market much sooner than expected. The publication of a patent application by tech giant Samsung shows a technology that is close to the smart glasses currently on the market from a few points of view, but eliminates most of its drawbacks.

Samsung filed this new patent in South Korea and the device shown is a contact lens that features the following components: a display, antenna, camera, several sensors that detect movement and blinking. Although an external connected device is needed for processing, the smart contact lens projects the images directly into the wearer's eye.

The application claims that the main reason for developing such a device is the limited image quality of the smart glasses, since lenses can deliver a much better augmented reality experience compared to the current technology available on the market. Since Samsung filed this patent almost two years ago and they recently applied for the "Gear Blink" trademark in both South Korea and the US, we might be much closer to the real thing than it seems.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
