Sony has patented a new technology contact lens that records video and takes pictures just by blinking.

The new patent which was awarded to the company in April describes the contact lens as being able to record video on request by the use of blinking.

Sensors in the lens can distinguish between voluntary and involuntary blinks

SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM FOR VIDEO

According to Minds.com Other smart contact lenses are focused on improving vision or providing an augmented reality HUD, but Sony wants to look outwards rather than in.

A new patent, awarded to the company in April, describes a contact lens that can be controlled by the user's deliberate blinks, recording video on request.

Sensors embedded in the lens are able to detect the difference between voluntary and involuntary blinks.

The image capture and storage technology would all be embedded in the lens around the iris, and piezoelectric sensors would convert the movements of the eye into energy to power the lens.
