Google has filed a patent for a vision-correcting electronic device, This sounds pretty good until you discover it has be injected directly into your eye.
Google said that the device is designed to help the focusing of light onto the retina, resulting in the correction of poor vision. It will contain its own storage, radio and lens and will apparently be powered wirelessly from an energy harvesting antenna. Good vision is better than a poke in the eye with a short stick after all.
Knowing Google it will probably force you to see advertising, or some other atrocity, but its biggest problem is that it will have to be injected. This is probably one of the worst nightmares anyone can have. It is all fun and games until someone has their eye out.
Although Google has filed the patent, that’s no guarantee that we’ll see the idea come to life anytime soon, or even at all.
