Sony Records Images with Blinks

Sony has been awarded a patent by the USPTO for an intelligent contact lens – which could be controlled through blinking. Sensors embedded in the lens would be able to tell the difference between voluntary and involuntary blinks: voluntary blinks would be used to capture images and video from what the wearer is looking at. The image capture and storage technology would be embedded in the lens. The lens itself would be powered by movements of the eye, converted into energy.
