IRVINE, Calif., June 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- EP Global Communications, Inc. (Public OTC: EPGL) announced today that it is working to build the first successful "Augmented Reality" contact lenses with a coalition of mobile app providers and at least one major mobile network service provider. "Your smart phone will be in your vision, if we are successful," says Michael Hayes, President of EPGL. "It's a massive new space." Imagine rock-climbing, running or cycling and a message comes in from Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. No problem, you'll see an alert right in your field of view. Imagine you're in a foreign country and you need instant language translation. You'll see it in real-time. Imagine images or text streaming into your field of view without you having to do anything but look at it. Just switch your smart phone to "eye mode". This new market is coming and many experts believe its revenues will rival that of the smart phone. Industry leaders and visionaries believe it is inevitable that all social media and mobile content will be available in augmented vision formats in the future. The total market for augmented vision is estimated to be larger than $120 billion dollars.
EPGL is Leading Giants
For nearly three years, EPGL has been developing technologies with the world's top ophthalmic companies to create flexible electronic circuitry for real contact lenses that can be safely worn by people. EPGL is the first and only company thus far to show public photos of its proven technology at www.epglmed.com. This electronic circuitry is the foundation for the new coming market of augmented vision applications in contact lenses.
EPGL now has several ophthalmic patents pending and recently filed patent for a new optical display system within silicone hydrogel contact lenses which it plans to be the foundation for several applications in augmented vision. The first of the patents is expected to be given an allowance very soon and major companies are already acquiring rights to EPGL technologies.
