The developer of the ‘Mojo Lens’ augmented reality smart contact lens, Mojo Vision, has unveiled an advanced prototype of its product with an array of new features.
The new Mojo Lens prototype is a crucial milestone in Mojo’s development, testing, and validation process. The new prototype embeds several new hardware features and technologies within the lens to enhance its display, communications, eye tracking, and power system.
Over the past couple of years, the company has invested in numerous software experiences for Mojo Lens. The new prototype features a foundational operating system code and user experience components. It will enable the company to progress with further development and testing of the product’s applications and use cases for its customers and partners.
It will help accelerate the development of what the company calls ‘Invisible Computing.’ It represents a next-generation computing experience that displays the information only when needed. The eyes-up experience could enable users to access information quickly and discreetly, eliminating the need to look down on a screen or focus on the people around them.
Mojo expects that the initial consumer base for Invisible Computing could comprise athletes, which reflects in its recently announced strategic partnerships with sports and fitness brands, such as Adidas Running. The company is collaborating with such partners to explore unique ways to improve athletes’ access to in-the-moment data. The objective is to help them stay focused on their workout or training and maximize performance without the distractions of traditional wearables.
“Mojo has created advanced foundational technologies and systems that weren’t possible before now. Innovating the new features in the lens is a tremendous amount of work, but successfully bringing them all together into an integrated system in such a small form factor is a considerable achievement in cross-disciplined product development,” said Mike Wiemer, VP of Engineering, CTO and co-founder of Mojo Vision.
Mojo has invented and developed many new technologies to achieve this milestone, such as the world’s smallest and densest display to project AR imagery, a low latency communications protocol to stream visual data efficiently, and a unique eye-controlled user interface to access and interact with AR content with just a glance.
“This latest prototype of Mojo Lens demonstrates major advances in the development of our platform and the goals for our company,” said Drew Perkins, CEO and co-founder of Mojo Vision.
