The planned device injected into the eye contains a number of tiny components: storage, sensors, radio, battery and an electronic lens. The eyeball device gets power wirelessly from an "energy harvesting antenna." The patent describes what looks like an external device to interface with the eyeball computer. The two will communicate through a radio and the "interface device" contains the processor to do the necessary computing. According to the patent, the electronic lens would assist in the process of focusing light onto the eye’s retina.
