Samsung has just filed for a patent covering a smart contact lens

Unlike the previously patented contact lens by google which measures the composition of the tear film to measure various vital functions, the Samsung smart contact lens is also intended to record and in the future also project images into the wearers retina.

The processing power will still be handled by a smart phone and the smart contact lens will only function as a recording and projection device.

While the patent is not yet a sign that the technology is going to be launched anytime soon it at least serves as a preview in which direction the future of mobile computing might develop.
