Hong Kong’s Mass Transit Railway Corporation is a “reference customer” for technology business regionally and globally, says the regional head of France-based, advanced technology firm, Thales Group. James Kilazoglou, CEO of Thales Transport & Security (HK), says that supporting the largest proportion of mass transit travellers in the world, the MTR provides a professional environment for many other business opportunities, such as for Thales’ smart card expertise, which it has exported to India. Thales also relies predominantly on Hong Kong-educated engineers and, in Hong Kong, has established an innovation centre and security competence capabilities for the Asia Pacific region.

By embedding LCD technology in a contact lens, the resulting electro-optic component could act as an artificial iris. When patterning the different pixels in concentric rings, the opening and closing of the iris can be mimicked, which is helpful for people with damaged irises. In this video increasing switching times are shown. Note that this artificial iris can switch much faster than a normal iris, potentially acting as an additional safety net for people working in bright light conditions. The component still needs embedding in a real contact lens, but a small hole was already foreseen in the middle to locally increase and match the oxygen permeability of the contact lens material. This work was performed at the Centre for Microsystems Technology, a research group affiliated with both ...
