[EN VIDÉO] Kezako: can we really trust our eyes?
The human eye can differentiate nearly eight million shades of color. However, this organ so advanced gives little information to our cortex to create an image. So what exactly happens when we see? Unisciel and the University of Lille 1 explain to us, with the Kézako program, how this surprising body works.

Displaying information on glasses in augmented reality, it has been around for a long time with Google Glass, HoloLens from Microsoft or the very last ones Facebook Ray-Ban. Do the same on contact lenses still very rare. There are some fairly successful attempts, such as that of the American company Mojo Vision, but adventurers in this sector are rare. During CES 2022, Mojo Vision has also presented its concept of lenses again, but they are rigid.

Still on the side of CES 2022, to find a flexible model of electronic contact lens, you had to go and see InWith Corporation. According to the arguments of its designer, these lenses flexible are almost magical. The stretchable and flexible electronic circuits are integrated into the lenses in hydrogel.

They correct presbyopia


In addition to displaying the contents of a mobile in augmented reality in front of theeye for orientation or visualization of data, these lenses could also correct the presbyopia. How? ‘Or’ What ? By adapting to the environment as with glasses progressive. They could also improve myopia. And for InWith, it’s not just a concept. The company intends to obtain the approval of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) this year, which means that the lenses could indeed be used to correct eyesight. For InWith, the longer-term goal would be to offer these lenses a smooth transition to metavers.
