Dr. Mike Wiemer and Dr. Brian Lemoff: “Mojo Lens, the First True Smart Contact Lens”
May 27, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Location: Packard 101
Title: Mojo Lens, the First True Smart Contact Lens
Abstract: After working in stealth for over 4 years, Mojo Vision recently unveiled the first working prototype of Mojo Lens, a smart contact lens designed to deliver augmented reality content wherever you look. This talk will provide an overview of the company, its vision of “Invisible Computing”, the science behind the world’s first contact lens display, and a first-hand account of what it’s like to actually wear Mojo Lens.
Mike Weimer is a serial entrepreneur and proven science and technology leader in complex systems development and integration. Before co-founding Mojo Vision as CTO, Weimer co-founded and served as president at Solar Junction, a high-efficiency solar cell company (acquired) where he and his team set two world records for the highest-efficiency solar cells ever made by humans. After Solar Junction, Wiemer joined New Enterprise Associates (NEA) as an Entrepreneur in Residence where he sourced new investments and helped portfolio companies to develop their business and funding strategies. He is a board director at Stratio Corporation and an advisor at Stanford’s StartX Accelerator. He holds a B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University.
Brian Lemoff is a Fellow at Mojo Vision where he leads the optics team and lends his expertise to efforts across the company. One of Mojo’s first employees, Lemoff invented several key technologies that make Mojo Lens possible. Before Mojo, Lemoff held leadership positions at HP/Agilent Labs and at the West Virginia High Tech Foundation. He received his BS/MS in physics from Caltech in 1989 and his PhD in physics from Stanford in 1994. Lemoff received the 1995 American Physical Society award for Outstanding Doctoral Research in Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics. He has 40 issued U.S. patents relating to optical communications and smart contact lenses, with many more patents pending.
