Futuristic technology: Night vision contact lenses


Simple contact lenses granting security guards and first responders night vision capabilities – no, they still don’t exist, but American researchers from the University of Michigan have already started developing the technology that will make them possible in the future.

The research team created an infrared sensorcomposed of an extremely thin layer of Graphene, a layer that could potentially be incorporated into contact lenses in the future. Graphene absorbs infrared light and translates it into electric signals, similar to the way silicone chips work with visible light in digital cameras. READ MORE
