The US based company Innovega unveiled a new eyewear system, the iOptik, on 11 January 2014. The eyewear system was showcased at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
The new eyewear system combines high-tech contact lenses and Google Glass-like smart glasses to provide the wearer with superhuman vision.
The iOptik system has been developed to take the concept of wearable technology to the next level. The prototype features up to six times the number of pixels and 46 times the screen size of mobile products that rely on conventional optics.
The contact lenses provide the wearer with enhanced focusing abilities. It also allows the wearer to see objects and images that are very close up, as well as those that are some distance away, in great clarity.
The glasses unlike Google Glass cover the whole eye. They are integrated with flat-panels or micro-projectors that create a 'virtual canvas', onto which digital media – such as photos, maps and social media updates – can be projected. They can also play games and watch films that mimic IMAX performance.
