Sony Wants To Put A Camera In Your Eye

Well, now I have to wonder just how many Sony engineers are secretly voyeurs.

According to the patent, Sony wants to develop a contact lens that آ— on paper آ— stands to be the best of the three designs. It’ll feature a built-in camera with storage, a transmission unit, autofocus, zoom, aperture control and even image stabilization. The camera’s shutter would be controlled by consciously blinking your eye, a process Sony says it’d be able to differentiate from a normal blink. What’s not clear is how you’d control things like zoom, aperture and recovery, but since this is just a patent application and not an actual product, we’re willing to forgive the lack of specifics.
