Scientists Develop AR-based Contact Lenses Using 3D Printing

A method for printing display on a smart contact lens in 3D has been devised by researchers in Korea, eeNews Europe reported.

The smart contact lenses for augmented reality (AR)-based navigation were created by Dr Seol Seung-Smart Kwon's 3D Printing Research Team at KERI in Changwon and Professor Lim-Doo Jeong's team at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST).

Printing micro-patterns onto a smart contact lens using a 3D printer without utilizing electricity is the secret to the KERI-UNIST research. The ink's meniscus is the key.
