Braille on the eyes with a tactile contact lensProfessor Zeev Zalevsky, director of Electro-Optics at Bar Ilan University’s engineering faculty, has developed with his team a prototype that ‘prints’ images on the surface of the eye in order to assist the brain through tactile response to understand what the person is looking at, according to the portal ‘Wired’.

The system obtains data from a mounted camera or mobile phone and transmits the encoded image through the contact lens to the wearer’s cornea. The tactile sensation can be interpreted by the user’s brain in such a way that they can understand what is in front of them. Zalevsky compares the technique to learning to read Braille.
