For the first time, scientists have developed contact lenses that can detect cancers through tears.

It's the dreaded letter C. Shivers run down my spine just thinking about it. This is due to the fact that it is not only tough to treat but also invasive to diagnose. Biopsies sometimes necessitate extensive wounds that create scars. Cancer-detecting contact lenses that are non-invasive That's why it was so amazing to learn that a group of researchers was working on non-invasive contact lenses that may detect and possibly even cure cancer. Yangzhi Zhu, a biomedical engineer at the Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation, a non-profit research organization in California, is the study's lead author. According to Inverse, the new invention is "quite interesting compared to the other current techniques in this space." Before you get too enthusiastic about the technology's advancem...

For the first time, smart contact lenses with an augmented reality display were put to the test.

Mojo Vision, a company in California that wants to make smart contact lenses that can work with augmented reality (AR), has already tested its technology on real people. Drew Perkins, the CEO of the company, was the first person to wear the contacts last week. He wrote a blog post about his experience. We just told you a few months ago that Mojo Vision is making smart contact lenses that can project images while they are on your eye. The company plans to do this by putting the world's densest display on a surface that is no bigger than 0.5 mm in diameter. In addition to the screen, the contact lens has a gyroscope, an accelerometer, and a magnetometer that work together to track your eye movements. This is done to make sure that the augmented reality images don't move while your eye ...
