Google Patent New Idea For Injecting A Computer Into Eye

A patent for a mini computer to be inserted directly to a human's eyeball is filed by Google. The tech company may be on to a sci-fi encouraged invention but it was described a mini-computer have a variety of uses. Most significant feat concerns vision, radio connectivity, and data storage.

Google has been identified for having vested interest in innovations and now the Mountain view company has applied for a patent regarding a device that can be injected directly into the eyeball. This device is expected to correct poor eyesight. The application also details the how the device would work, once injected into fluid the device would then solidify with the eye’s lens capsule and will blend with the transparent membrane on the periphery of the lens.

As per the News, the "eye computer" has the capability to enhance eyesight as well as light can apparently bounce off the injected implant. It also permits for data processing but no other details were given out. The "eye computer" works through a special antenna. While Google filed a patent for the creation, there is no word on when it will be available to the public. 

Forbes also detailed on the injecting procedure of the optic computer. The eye's lens capsule is entered through the form of an injected liquid that finally solidifies. An external device will interact with the "eye computer" to do the proper data processing and crunching. With the 2014 Google Contact Lenses that measures glucose as the instance, it is highly likely that Verily is also the Google arm working on the recent invention as its head, Andrew Jason Conrad also happens to be the inventor. 


According to the patent filing, the device would replace the natural lens in our eye, and would be added to a solution that solidifies, attaching to our lens capsule. Sure, the device would mostly be used as a way to correct poor vision, however, it could be used for different things, too.

The device will be comprised of several components including electronic lens, sensors, storage and radio. The energy for the lens will be gathered from an “energy-harvesting antenna.” An external companion device will be able to communicate with the eyeball computer and it is controlled by a processor that takes care of the computing needs. 



While a patent is not exactly a declaration of public sales, Google is just setting up parameters on how a wearable form of technology can be used even if it's not in the form of an injected micro-sized computer. Other tech companies are likely to follow the style of developing a similar bite-sized technology. Science fiction may cease to be just fiction soon.
