Contacts-That-Can-Change-Focus-and-Zoom-Are-Almost-a-Reality

Plenty of you reading this will have been blessed with perfect eyesight. For the rest of us, it’s glasses, contacts or Lasik surgery. While we’re cool with whatever works best for you, advances in the world of contact science by researchers at the University of California San Diego have led to some pretty crazy new contact lenses that are worth talking about. Most notably, these new contact lenses allow the user to change focus and zoom based on blinking and their eye movements. The lenses themselves are “made out of stretchy polymer films that respond to electric signals generated by your eyes when they make a movement,” which allows the humans wearing them to control how they see their surroundings. As of right now, it still requires some external hardware and a special rig, but it’s only a matter of time before the technology goes full Skynet.
