I was reading some cool stuff online this evening but was distracted by an update from CNN money which is worth sharing.
Now the kinda shocky tech update is that Google has a new patented electronic lens that would be injected into your eyeball.
This might make some people so happy while others will be left with a morbid feeling. All the same, you have to get the gist.
Google wants to inject cyborg lenses into your eyeballs
Like I have always reiterated, the pace of technology is getting super fast as each day passes. But it sometimes becomes scary.
In the mean time, the company has been developing smart glasses and even smart contact lenses. But Google’s newest patented technology would go even further and deeper.In its patent application, which the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office approved last week, Google says it could remove the lens of your eye,
The lenses could be powered by the movement of your eyeball, and they could even connect to a nearby wireless device.Google says that its patented lenses could be used to cure presbyopia, an age-related condition in which people’s eyes stiffen and their ability to focus is diminished or lost.
It could also correct common eye problems, such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism.
Today, we cure blurry vision with eyeglasses or contact lenses. But sometimes vision is not correctable. And there are clear advantages to being a cyborg with mechanical eyes.
Yet Google (GOOGL, Tech30) noted that privacy could become a concern. If your computerized eyes are transmitting data all the time, that signal could allow law enforcement or hackers to identify you or track your movements.
Google said that it could make the mechanical lenses strip out personally identifying information so that your information stays secure.
Before you sign up for cyborg eyes, it’s important to note that Google and many other tech companies patent technologies all the time.
