Scientists create lenses that increase the image on command

Scientists from the University of California at San Diego are working on a prototype of a contact lens that

controlled by eye movements.

How it works

Biomimetic lens consists of elasticpolymer films that react to electrical signals generated by the eyes when they make any movements. Owners of such lenses will be able to increase or decrease the image, just blinking twice.

But throwing reading glasses is still too early. While the prototype functions only with a special installation of electrodes around the eyes. Scientists hope that in the future their invention will be used in prostheses, glasses and robotic technology with remote control.
