Mojo Vision detailed its progress on a tiny AR display it embeds in contact lenses.

Femtoprojector, a tiny magnification system, expands the imagery optically and beams it to a central patch of the retina.

The technology adds a layer of information onto real world images.

A ring of electronics including a tiny camera, display, processor, eye tracker, wireless charger, and radio link to the outside world.

Monitors your eye's movement and adjust imagery accordingly.

The display and projector don't disturb your real-world vision.

"You can read a book or watch a movie with your eyes closed," - Mike Wiemer, CTO at Mojo Vision.

Raised $159 million so far from venture capitalists.

Mojo Lens could help people with vision problems and athletes.

Prototypes have passed toxicology tests, and expects a fully featured prototype in 2021.
