The company made a splash exactly one year ago by unveiling a prototype of the technology at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show. This year, at the same Las Vegas-based event, the company plans to show a working version. Innovega staff will wear the iOptik system on the show floor, CNET said.
The glasses are slim and fitted with little more than the micro-projectors. Willey said his company will license the technology to other vendors, who may add other elements: audio devices, touch control, a camera, an accelerometer, and other hardware seen in similar gadgets such as Google Glass.
While the company still needs FDA approval, Willey said it was "501(k) market clearance," which he said was a simpler process.
"It's called a market clearance because contact lenses have already been approved many times over, with many different designs," he said. The company plans to apply for approval in late 2014 or early 2015.
