"Google has been getting lots of attention over the past year for its Project Glass initiative, starting with a widely viewed video that showed the search giant’s aspirations for augmented reality glasses. But that video was Google’s vision of the future, not a current reality.
The first prototypes of Google’s glasses use a small screen in the periphery of the eye, not an immersive pair of glasses. The problem is that we can’t focus on images so close to our eyes.
But a startup based in the Seattle region, Innovega, is moving ahead with its unique contact lens technology, iOptik, that refocuses light to let users see images and text projected onto glasses, augmenting but not blocking the view beyond the glasses."
