AR contact lens wins CES’ Last Gadget Standing competition

Andreas Milano

The eyes really do tell all.

Or, at least a whole lot when using the world’s first augmented reality contact lenses.

The Mojo Vision Lens, which projects text, image and video information overlays onto your field of vision, captured the Last Gadget Standing prize Tuesday evening at CES 2021.

Mojo Lens fits like a regular contact lens and uses motion sensor technology

Andreas Milano

L’Oreal debuted a gadget at CES last year that promised to make lipstick shades in whatever color wearers wanted. This year, we’re learning what that device requires to work at home: lipstick pods.

The Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Rouge Sur Mesure Powered by Perso — yes, that really is the name — takes three different lipstick color pods and squirts their liquid out at the top of the device for wearers to mix. (The pods dispense the YSL Beauty Velvet Cream Matte Finish formula.) When combined, they create the desired shade. The top of the Bluetooth-enabled device doubles as a

How to Reboot Your Burnt-Out Brain

Andreas Milano

LG: That’s a good one. I have found the screen time limits to be too easy to ignore, frankly. But like any habit, probably just takes a little bit of effort.

LG: Yes, very much so.

MC: All right. So we’re going to take a break right now and when we come back we’re
