Like it or not, cameras are coming to a contect lens near you.

We reported about a month ago that Samsung had filed a patent for a contact lens with a camera integrated in, and now Sony is following suit and filed its own contact camera patents this week.

Like the Samsung lens, the contact lens would have a camera installed ontop of the outside of the lens and could be controlled remotly.

Bad News, Good News

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.


The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.


For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
