Sony Smart Contact Lens

Sony is following in the footsteps of Google or Samsung with a patent for smart contact lenses.

According to SonyAlphaRumors, the electronics giant has patented new technology with an advanced lens, featuring a built-in camera, storage and transmission unit.

The patent also says the lens will be able to have autofocus, aperture control and image stabilization. To control it, the wearer would simply have to blink, but the patent claims that the contact lenses would be able to differentiate between a regular blink and one to capture a photo.
