High tech contact lenses have now been developed by a new start-up company, which has the ability to float virtual screens filled with information in front of the wearer's eyes.

Innovega's iOptik system's two-part system depends on special contact lenses working as a filter to let human eye focus simultaneously on things near and far, using rings that route light to retina in different ways, Fox News reported.

Part two is a pair of special glasses that are fitted with tiny projectors transmitting data forward onto the eyeglass lenses.

According to CNET, the lenses allow the user to view the projected information, whether it's driving directions or messages or videos.

Innovega CEO Stephen Willey said his company will license the tech to other vendors, who may add other elements such as audio devices, touch control, a camera, an accelerometer, and other hardware seen in similar gadgets like Google Glass.
