I Contact – A Mouse Fitted to Your Eyeball

This product may not hit the market anytime soon, but it isn’t that far-fetched and could revolutionize the tech world. I Contact is essentially a mouse fitted to your eyeball. The lens is inserted like any other normal contact lens except it's laced with sensors to track eye movement The sensors then relay that position to a receiver connected to your computer and give you full control over a mouse cursor. Pretty neat, huh? Desiged by Eun-Gyeong Gwon & Eun-Jae Lee, the idea was originally created for people with disabilities but anyone could use it. Those of us too lazy to use a mouse now have a free hand to do whatever it is people do when they sit at the computer for endless hours. I guess we’ll have to wait and see if this smart design becomes reality…
