Innovega - Dual Focus Contact Lens

“The lenses work by allowing the wearer to focus on two things at once – both the information projected onto the glasses’ lenses and the more distant view that can be seen through them.”

 

“The lenses are designed to be paired with compact heads up display (HUD) units – glasses that allow images to be projected onto their lenses. Much bulkier HUDs are already deployed by the US Army and Air Force to superimpose data about targets and other status updates over users’ view. The tech could help troops enhance their awareness on the battlefield.”

 

“The iOptik system’s developer, Innovega, told the BBC it had signed a contract earlier this week to deliver a fully-functioning prototype to the Pentagon’s research laboratory, Darpa. The US Department of Defense had previously funded part of the Washington-based firm’s initial engineering work on the project. “The new contract gives us an immediate opportunity to start prototyping and demonstrating elements of this new system,” Innovega’s chief executive Steve Willey said.”

 

Presumably, some of the more gung-ho military types will now have the ability to target twice as many civilians with “friendly fire”.
