Cool idea...but how do you get energy to power the electronic contact lenses?

@Krisi: An integrated micro battery and/or energy harvester of course. Ambitious, I know!

Yeah, I know energy harvesting would be the best...but where do you put it? most harvesters require space, likely energy to be harvested is proportional to the volume of the harvester (or its surface)

Actually many innovations can be done on contact lenses its jusf one has to thinkover and keep on challengng.

Ben Krasnow sandwiched a coil between contact lenses and powered an LED while wearing it... in his GARAGE!

 

Check out the video, it is insane.

Induction, perhaps?

More SciFi to become reality

A logical step in technological evolution for me but my daughter pointed out the Scifi series Continuum where contact lenses are taken to another dimension. Thinking back to some older Scifi shows, they already implied the use of tablets, video phones and tricoders. Maybe we should take a closer look at what SciFi shows us now. This may be soon the next gadget of technology.

OK, the coil is in the lens now, I get that...where is the other coil and source of energy? (in a practical device)

Auto-focus contact lens

It seems that a much easier application would be to use a liquid lens and a distance sensor to produce a self focusing lens. The challenge, when driving, would be to avoid focusing on the automobile windshield and to focus on the road instead.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
