Mojo Vision is pushing that future and with every new technology leap they are bringing it closer to reality. The tech startup wants to skip bulky headsets and move straight into contact lens-based AR with the Mojo Lens. The Mojo Lens projects images on the users' retina with a MicroLED display that is the size of a grain of sand.

This display has 70,000 pixels, measures in at 0.5mm across, and delivers 14,000ppi. The energy-saving technology is also extremely impressive, as it uses only 10% of the energy a normal LED would. On top of that, the MicroLED display can emit 5x to 10x the brightness an OLED display can. Some of the specifications have been listed below courtesy of

Jaks love for technology and more specifically PC gaming began at 10 years old, it was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on a old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of the typical FPS PC gamer, Jak enjoys the likes of a solid MMO, RPG, or a single-player linear story. More importantly, though, he holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
