According to a report, the Pentagon has placed their order for a prototype of a contact lense that is capable of increasing the wearer’s available field of vision. Allegedly, the lenses work in conjunction with a small heads up display, typically glasses, whose lenses accommodate projected images and potentially afford soldiers a more detailed view of the battleground. Reportedly, the lenses permit the user to focus not only the information being projected onto them, but the surrounding area as well, through the utilization of two separate filters. The outer filter, reportedly, sends the surrounding external light to the rim of the pupil, while the inner filter sends the projected images to the center of the pupil, where the retina, simultaneously, receives both images, thereby allowing “dual focus.”


It has been reported that Innovega, who developed the iOptik system utilized in the construction of the contact lenses, has already entered into an agreement with the Pentagon and are confident they will be able to fulfill their contractual obligation by 2014, following the completion of the clinical trials as mandated by the United States Food and Drug Administration. The company is reportedly looking into public applications as well.

Interesting, but, no surprise really. It is was inevitable that there would be the development of devices that work to more closely integrate the digital world with the physical world, and perhaps eventually more closely integrated into human biology.

The only issue with these is the factor of a gas attack. We are prohibited from wearing lens in the field in case we do come in contact with gas since it will do some hardcore damage to your eyes.

Otherwise I see no issue.

That was my first thought as well. I'm guessing we'd see new MOPP gear with the projectors built into the mask, or at least some kind of full cover helmet/goggle design.

What I'm interested in are the effects of long-term usage. I don't know if a full 120° FoV is part of the goal or not (I assume that would require personnel to have cameras on their person, but again, not sure) but even if they are used only to provide clear visual of everything near-and-far, it could be pretty jarring if someone grew accustomed to using them all the time suddenly lost that ability.
