After Google Glass and Google lens, Google goes further inside your eyes.
Google filed a patent for an intra-ocular device that can connect to wireless devices, take photos, and automatically adjust the eye’s focus.
The patented device requries surgery. Therefore, it technically makes you a cyborg once it is implanted. The natural lens is first removed from the lens capsule of the eye. Then, the patented device is injected in fluid that then solidifies to couple the device with the eye’s lens capsule.
The device injected into the eye contains a number of tiny components: storage, sensors, radio, battery and an electronic lens. The eyeball device gets power wirelessly from an energy harvesting antenna.
