“Virtual reality is a technology that could actually allow you to connect on a real human level, soul-to-soul, regardless of where you are in the world.” We are in a world where change has become a part and parcel of our lives. We are constantly evolving with time. Technology is a gift of God. After the gift of life it is perhaps the greatest of God’s gifts. It is the mother of civilizations, of arts and of sciences. Our life is now becoming digital with each passing day. Mobile phones, Laptops, Tablets have created havoc in the society. Mobile phones have replaced cameras, T.V’s, Home theatres, etc. Nowadays social media has prime importance in our lives and photos and videos play key elements in our lives. After proper research and experiments, Japanese have come up with intelligent contact lenses capable of recording and playing video – all with the blink of an eye.
Seven Japanese inventors designed the contacts, which would include a camera, a wireless processing unit and a storage unit. This means the lenses could store their own video – unlike Samsung’s smart lenses patented earlier this month, which rely on a smart phone. There was an article by Sony revealing how smart lenses would use movements of the eyelids to activate various functions. Sony’s smart contacts would use sensors to detect when a user closes an eyelid. Depending on how long the eyelid remains closed, the lenses could distinguish voluntary movements from accidental blinking.
It is known that a time period of usual blinking is usually 0.2 seconds to 0.4 seconds, and therefore it can be said that, in the case where the time period of blinking exceeds 0.5 seconds, the blinking is conscious blinking. The contacts would use sensors to detect how long a user’s eyelid stays closed, this distinguishing accidental blinks from voluntary movements (file picture)Users could switch the camera mode on and off by closing their eyelids on purpose.
They could also use their smart phones to control the contacts. Sony’s lenses could also keep track of every time the user’s eyelid closes while video is recording, so that the resulting black screens can be deleted later on.To play video, users could use a predetermined movement of the eyelids, different from the blink required to activate or deactivate other functions.
