Welcome To The World’s First AR/VR Smart Contact Lens with peripheral and focused vision

Our Technology speaks to the Following Ideas:

“The question is not what you look at, but what you see.”

~ Henry David Thoreau

“Everyone takes the limits of his own vision for the limits of the world.”

~ Arthur Schopenhauer

"The eyes are the gateway to the soul.”

~ Herman Melville

At Smart Contact Lens Inc., in partnership with RaayonNova, we are developing a unique, futuristic, and revolutionary AR & VR-enabled smart contact lens (SCL) system with an embedded display. Our SCL technology plugs into the sense of sight to deliver information in an enabling and enriching fashion.

Our Mission: the great philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer once said, “Everyone takes the limits of his own vision for the limits of the world.”
Thus, our mission is to expand the limits of the world by expanding what we see.

Industries we target:

The industries we target include: healthcare, financial services, consumer electronics, transportation, manufacturing, agriculture, military, science, space, construction, technology, telecom, education, hospitality, and many other industries.

Patents Pending

SCL WITH TERP DETERMINATION AND TRACKING CAPABILITY

An SCL capable of determining and tracking TERP (task-evoked pupillary response). This unprecedented feature enables adaptive, predictive, reactive, and behavior-tracking systems and applications.

SCL WITH EMBEDDED DISPLAY AND ACCOMMODATION AND REFOCUS CAPABILITY

Enabling a smart contact lens with an embedded display to accommodate and refocus, displaying imagery on an embedded display which comes into focus at the center of the display, right in front of the retina. The image on the display shifts according to the accommodation and refocus efforts of the user’s eyes.

SCL WITH EMBEDDED DISPLAY AND 2D OR 3D ORIENTATION SENSORS.

A smart contact lens with 2D or 3D orientation sensors. Such an SCL is capable of determining and tracking gaze vectors.

CONTACT LENS CHARGING AND STORAGE

Smart storage cases for electronic contact lenses that can transfer data and energy for charging the contact lens overnight.

MASTER SLAVE ARRANGEMENT FOR SCL SYSTEM

A master-slave arrangement for the smart contact lens system, enabling the coupling of heterogeneous smart contact lenses with differing capabilities. The present invention allows the dynamic coupling of smart contact lenses depending on the functionality required.

SCL WITH EMBEDDED DISPLAY AND EYE BASED CONTROL SYSTEM

Enabling the user of an SCL to control the system with their eyes only, or with their eyes and an optional additional triggering action.

SCL WITH EMBEDDED IMAGE CAPTURE DEVICE AND EYE CONTROL SYSTEM

An SCL system with embedded image capture and display devices. The image capture device control is achieved with the eyes only.

SCL WITH VARIETY OF ELECTRONIC SENSORS

SCL with a variety of embedded electronic sensors.
