Next Step In Augmented RealityOne of the hurdles of augmented reality has been the fact that the human eye cannot focus on images incredibly close, until now. Innovega Inc. has developed contact lenses called iOptiks that do allow the eye to focus on images as close as on a pair of glasses while still maintaining long distance and peripheral vision. This means that images could be projected on a pair of glasses rather than having to rely on bulky head wear. This has applications both in military (DARPA is of course interested) and also in more mundane, but cooler ideas such as gaming.Image
