DailyDirt: Visions Of The Future

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Digital cameras are getting better all the time, but our natural vision only seems to degrade over time. (Almost everyone over forty years old will suffer from some kind of presbyopia.) There may be technological solutions to improving human vision, but so far, projects like Google Glass are more about augmenting vision, not necessarily improving a user's sight. Here are just a few interesting projects working on useful eye prosthetic devices. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.
