Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), in one of its many patents, states that making future smart contact lenses is linked with the system and /or methods for clicking image data representing a scene to which the viewer is looking through a thin image capture component fitted in the contact lens. These images can be processed and used locally or remotely on one or more devices. The term “image capture component” means a camera, according to Patentbolt.

Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) could integrate a thin camera component on or in a contact lens keeping in mind the thickness of the contact lens is not increased too much. Also, the camera within the lens will be placed such that it does not restrict the vision of the viewer, and takes the picture smoothly.

Once the user shifts to another object, the camera should automatically adjust, generating image data similar to the image that the user is looking. Users can run these images for detecting light, colors, and pattern of colors, objects, faces, motion or any other information gleaned by processing the image.

Connecting components with wire or wirelessly

Within the patent, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) explained that a control circuit is linked with the camera and sensors through a wire or without one. Also, various aspects of interactions like control circuit, image capture component and sensors can be connected with each other through wires or even wirelessly.

For instance, communication interaction may be linked wirelessly, while power supply interactions may be linked with the help of a wire. Sensors in the camera will capture energy wirelessly or mechanically.

  1. Google has a plan. Eventually it wants to get into your brain. “When you think about something and don’t really know much about it, you will automatically get information,” Google CEO Larry Page said in Steven Levy’s book, “In the Plex: How Google Thinks, Works and Shapes Our Lives.” “Eventually you’ll have an implant, where if you think about a fact, it will just tell you the answer.”
    Who wants Google in their head? Who volunteers for the Mark of the Beast?
