Sony Files Patent For Smart Contact Lenses That Can Record Videos, Take Pictures With Blink Of An Eye reports that Sony has filed a patent application for a smart contact lens with impressive technological features. The move appears to follow the lead of tech giants Google and Samsung.

Two years ago, Google unveiled a lens project that aims to help diabetics keep track of their glucose levels. Samsung made a similar patent application at the Korean Patent office three weeks ago for a contact lens with a tiny camera that can be controlled with the blink of the eyes.

With a similar interest in wearable technology, Sony has also filed a new patent with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for smart contact lenses with camera-like features.

The contact lenses can take photos and record videos as well as play back the captured footages for the user.
