Samsung: Patent For Contact Lenses With Built-In Camera Projecting Images Into The Eye

Forget smart glasses: Samsung patents contact lenses with built-in camera that projects images directly into the eye. 

Contact lenses will include a display, camera, antenna and sensors. The antenna will link up to a smartphone, which processes images. Google also has two patents for similar smart contact lens designs.

Samsung has been granted a patent for contact lenses that project images directly into the eye.
The patent, awarded in South Korea, includes a contact lens equipped with a display, a camera, an antenna, and several sensors that detect movement.
The contact lens will use the antenna to link up to a smartphone, which processes the image sent into the eyes.
