SARATOGA, Calif. — September 15, 2020 — Mojo Vision, the Invisible Computing company, has been selected as a top ten finalist for NASA iTech’s 2020 Cycle I program. Mojo and other finalists will present their ideas to NASA leadership at a virtual event on October 1-2, 2020. At the end of the event, three winners will be chosen to receive special consideration for NASA’s missions, including the Artemis program to the Moon and Mars. Winners will also receive additional exposure to financial and strategic investors who are affiliated with NASA’s efforts.

NASA iTech identifies and searches for cutting-edge technologies that solve problems here on Earth, but also have the potential to address challenges facing the exploration of Mars and the Moon. For the 2020 Cycle I, innovators worldwide submitted entries related to the following technology areas: artificial intelligence and machine learning, biotechnology, system autonomy, and advanced manufacturing. A fifth area, X-factor innovations, drew entries for other technologies that could impact space exploration, even if the idea does not fall neatly into another category.

Mojo Vision is developing Mojo Lens, the world’s first augmented reality (AR) smart contact lens. Mojo Lens technology overlays images, symbols and text on users’ natural field of vision without obstructing their view or restricting mobility. Mojo calls the eyes-up, hands-free experience Invisible Computing. By enabling users to focus on the task in front of them and not on distracting devices, the technology could be a critical resource in addressing challenges for future exploration missions to the Moon and Mars.

With a fresh approach that gives no government funds and takes no ownership of intellectual data, NASA iTech is able to go beyond traditional partnerships and support early, independent innovation. Since its inception just three years ago, companies and innovators that have participated in NASA iTech have gone on to leverage $500 million in private investments, while NASA grows its list of technologies potentially usable for future missions.
