Such a smart contact lens will have various sensors, including light, pressure, and temperature sensors. So why would one want to use such a solution? A wearer can send commands to smartphones and other smart devices with the blink of an eye. Patent Bolt has the full story and all the details. Let’s just say Google has more wearable solutions in the works than Google Glass.
