DARPA To Test iOptik Contact Lenses

DARPA is set to get the first set of new iOptik contact lenses that it will test to see if the lenses can provide more situational awareness to soldiers. The lenses have dual filters that allow the eye to focus on a HUD that is close to the eye and the normal environment that is far from the eye.

The lenses will be able to overlay data on targets on soldiers normal vision and provide other waypoints and points of interest. The HUD is apparently displayed onto a normal sunglasses or goggles. The company who makes the lenses also notes parent testing with the FDA and the technology will come to average consumers as well.
