Creating “Super Powers” for First Responders
On Spatial Perspectives, host Dan Cui will have a one-on-one dialog with innovators and thought leaders in the growing Spatial Reality, or Spatial Computing, market. Cui will invite guests who can discuss the real world use cases of the technology and how it could benefit mankind while exploring any drawbacks and how they might be mitigated.
Smart contact lenses aren’t just in the movies. Mojo Vision is seeking to make them a reality. Through invisible computing, this innovation is well on its way to being available. To discuss the concept, host Dan Cui spoke with the company’s Senior VP of Product and Marketing, Steve Sinclair.
Sinclair said, “The idea is to be able to see content in front of you without a screen yet look like yourself.”

The invention has many use cases, but the central message is to allow people to be engaged in the real world and not be bombarded with content. The first application the company is working on is for those with low vision conditions. “They aren’t blind but have difficulty seeing, and the lens can correct this allowing those people to get back some independence,” Sinclair explained.
How exactly does it work? There’s a lot of technology in the small lens, including biosafe batteries, motion sensors, and image sensors. It also has the smallest, densest dynamic display.
What about comfort and safety? Sinclair said, “It rests of the white of the eye, which has fewer nerves, and it’s custom fit. The display is small enough not to bother the eye, but it’s always in clarity and resolution.”
The company has been working on the product for five years. It’s both a consumer electronic and a medical device, so FDA clearance is necessary. “It does require FDA certification, and we applied for the breakthrough devices program. We have frequent sprints on topics and get feedback, which we take back to iterate,” Sinclair shared.
