Paper Abstract

This paper is a report of work in progress toward the development and testing of a computer interface mounted in eyewear, and capable of both input and output functions. The unique feature of this interface is the use of advanced embedded optical techniques to form eyeglass lenses capable of relaying images internally, without significant optical components in front of the user's face. These optical techniques make possible the incorporation of both a camera and display within eyeglasses. The interface also includes audio input and output. The paper discusses methods of constructing such an interface, design considerations, and will describe work in progress to realize working models.
