First-person-view cameras, sometimes called “action cameras,” have been pretty popular in the marketplace. But while these cameras are fairly small, when attached to a human, they’re not exactly low-profile. Google Glass shrunk down the camera and put it in an infamous pair of glasses.

But Samsung may be onto something with a camera in a contact lens.

SamMobile is reporting that the company has applied for trademarks on the term “Samsung Gear Blink” in both South Korea and in the US. Following on from that, a South Korean patent filing from Samsung showed off some art featuring a contact lens with a display, a camera, an antenna, movement sensors and blinking as the main input method. All of the components will have to be mere micrometers in size. They would also interact with a smartphone.

The possible “Gear Blink” is also going to be better as a piece of smart eyewear because it would allow for increased focal distance, putting more things in view. In short, it ain’t your Galaxy Glass.
