Iranian man develops eye-cam capable of capturing photos with a blink

This eye-cam allows you to capture memories in the blink of an eye.

It prevents taking photos on your smartphone or camera from getting in the way of experiencing moments IRL.

It also disproves the ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ theory once and for all.

It comes hot on the heels of other eyewear tech like the Apple Vision Pro – which has been used globally to perform surgery – and Meta and Ray-Ban collaborating to release limited edition Ferrari smart glasses.

This camera is the creation of record-breaking Iranian inventor, Amir Emdadii, aka Dr Electronic.

It comes in the form of a contact lens – but there’s a lot more to it than that.

In fact, this compact lens features a tiny screen, camera, radio frequency antenna, and sensors that can detect eye movement.

When in the eye, the contact lens can be connected to a smartphone phone, and the accompanying software.

And snap: the user can control image input with a blink of an eye.

Not only still images, though – the camera can also film, before saving it all to the user’s phone memory.

The eye-cam also features swivel sensors and can detect blood sugar levels by analyzing levels of certain chemicals in the user’s tears.

The smart lens is not yet available, but in the future, it’s hoped they can either be sold to the military – almost as James Bond as this submarine car – or directly to consumers.

It’s been ‘successful’ in testing for five months and gave a ‘positive result’ in a clinical test.

Keep your eyes peeled for more news on this.
