Eyewear interactive equipped with a small chip, which will serve as an eye tracker, will allow the user to select the data to be viewed

Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS), Germany, are developing an interactive data with glasses can only respond to commands with eye movement.

Seen countless times in film, the object is capable of transporting the user into a virtual world or provide additional information to the real environment.

With the lens attached to a helmet, also called HMD (in free translation, the head mounted display), is already part of everyday life for car designers and pilots of jet planes. The device now displays only information, it is still considered rudimentary by its researchers.

"We want to make these glasses and two-way interactive, so new application areas may be open," said the manager of IPMS, Michael Scholl.

The commands are given by a PDA attached to the frame. Through movement and eye fixation orders are routed and confirmed.

The projection image is generated by an organic chip that measures 19.3 by 17 mm. The feeling is that whoever uses the projection is one meter away. Possible problems and the intervention of external lighting have been corrected with the use of diodes to produce high-brightness displays.

"The glasses are a breakthrough for the medical field and may offer patients a monitoring vital functions or even X-ray images for evaluation by the surgeons," the researchers finish.
