November 4, 2022 – Mojo Vision, developer of the “Mojo Lens” augmented reality (AR) smart contact lens, announced this week that it has developed a potential customer implementation of Alexa Shopping List on its Mojo Lens prototype.
According to the company, the implementation marks the first major consumer third-party app on its smart contact lenses. Mojo Vision also added that the test integration helped show how it could integrate Alexa voice AI with Mojo Lens’ unique and powerful eye interface.
Mojo Vision, which bills itself as the “invisible computing company”, has made significant progress in the development of its smart contact lens technology, and the company continues to research and identify new potential for this revolutionary solution.
The Alexa Shopping List test integration shows how Mojo Vision’s eyes-up, hands-free technology could work with Amazon’s Alexa voice AI and Alexa Shopping List feature. The use case envisions an experience where someone can access their grocery list at the grocery store (or any other retail store) without distraction, easily check things hands-free, and make sure they do not forget any article.
In the integration test, a user can ask Alexa to add items to an Alexa shopping list before or during a trip to the store. The Alexa Shopping List feature would appear as one of the apps on Mojo Lens, and the user can access their list in their view frame, while walking down the aisles of the store. By simply using their eyes, the customer can naturally read and scroll through the list, effortlessly checking off items as they add them to their basket. If another household member adds items to the Alexa shopping list, the list is immediately updated on Mojo Lens, ensuring no items are missed before checkout.
Mojo Vision has received implementation and development support from Amazon to enable the Alexa Shopping List test demo for Mojo Lens.
“Alexa Shopping List is a powerful example of how Mojo Lens can be a platform for a range of useful apps and experiences for eyes-up, hands-free consumers,” said Mike Wiemer, vice president of engineering, technical director and co-founder of Mojo Vision. . “With Alexa, Amazon is fundamentally improving the way people interact with technology using voice. Mojo Vision sees a similar opportunity, but with our eyes. Vision plays a vital role in how we perceive and interact with the world. , and Mojo Lens will help people access information quickly without distracting from the world around them.
Ramya Reguramalingam, GM, Alexa Shopping List, also commented on the test integration: “At Amazon, we believe experiences can be enhanced with technology that’s always there when you need it, but you never have to. think it. We’re thrilled that Mojo Vision’s invisible computing for Mojo Lens, coupled with the Alexa Shopping List demo as a use case, shows the art of what’s possible for hands-free smart shopping experiences. and discreet.
Mojo Vision continues to develop its Mojo Lens product, the world’s first true smart contact lens.
