A smartphone right on your eye? It's no longer a sci-fi imagination

A company just brought to life a product straight out of science fiction after developing a contact lens that also functions like a smartphone.

Called Mojo Lens, the device turns the whole field of vision as a giant screen for the wearer.

The lens contains a micro LED display whose software can be controlled by moving the eye. The lens is scleral, which covers even the white of the eyes.

"It turns out that the display is so small and close to your eye that your eye essentially looks around the display," said Mike Wiemer, CTO and co-founder of Mojo Vision.

"We custom fit each lens to your eyes so that it's extremely comfortable to wear. It doesn't rotate or slip on the eye," he added.

According to Mojo Vision, the Mojo Lens software can understand athletic business, and leisure activities.

"It quietly provides you with crucial data while you're engaged in events that demand your attention," the company website said. "With its invisible, wearable display, Mojo Lens helps you keep your concentration by providing information heads-up and hands-free."

The display is in green at present, but the company is working to launch a full color version soon.
