Exploring Eyewearables: The Landscape & Future

The eyes are the next great frontier for digital enhancement. We’ll soon leverage smarter glasses and sensing lenses that will track activity, glucose levels, blood pressure, glaucoma, and even dispense medication. New contacts will interface with smart glasses to project high-resolution virtual display, overlaid on your view of the world! Emerging "eyewearables" will soon deliver a seamless, hands-free, immersive environment that will revolutionize our computer-mediated lives. Join IEEE to explore the “eyewearables” landscape and the applications of smart glasses, contact lenses and AR/VR headsets to improve life, health, communication, the arts, education and much more!
