And when you have a eyeleash stuck in your eye you will see the quantum realm.

Maybe if you blink more than two times in a row then it doesn't trigger it?


samfreez t1_j9p6xpt wrote

Can you imagine the havoc that'd create if someone got something in their eye while driving, or anything like that? lol

Even just walking along... I'd imagine quite a few people would get dizzy AF if they happened to trigger it.

That said, it'd be pretty epic to have something like these for watching sports and concerts and stuff..


jamjam1090 OP t1_j9p8p3f wrote

Yea there would have to be some sort of guideline for using it, I’m guessing the blinks would have to be pretty hard to trigger it. Reading came to mind for me as well, especially for an older crowd.


MetaLizard t1_j9qsfjk wrote

I think it should be more than two in a row personally. But if you won't constantly be using it, like for reading, only having one eye's contact be zoomable would prevent an error completely fucking up your sight.

Just change the design so it activates when you do the hand binocular thing.


NewCanadianMTurker t1_j9p7b7s wrote

This seems unnecessary. Just do what I do and always carry around a pair of binoculars with you (and ignore the funny looks people will give you).

Nah. Bird watcher.

Like George McFly.

bobcat7781 t1_j9q8l8d wrote

Let's go birdin' now
Everybody's learning how
Come on and safari with me
(Come on and safari with)

Early in the morning we'll be startin' out
Some honeys will be coming along
We're loading up our woody
With our bins inside
And headin' out singing our song

Come on birdin' baby wait and see
Yes I'm gonna take you birdin' with me
Come along birdin' baby wait and see 
Yes I'm gonna take you birdin' with me

Bad article.

"The lens created was able to change its focal length depending on the signals generated." That's all, the rest is AI generated bullshit and ads.

Found this bit from elsewhere:

"The lens is made from polymers that expand when electric current is applied. It is controlled using five electrodes surrounding the eye which act like muscles. When the polymer becomes more convex the lens effectively zooms in"

Ahelex t1_j9rlk0y wrote

Isn't that kind of what happened in one of the Mission Impossible films, except instead of zooming in, it's taking pictures every time the main character blinks twice?

As a 25+ year contact wearer this sounds like a nightmare.

Your baseline of free blinks is used up. If you wish to blink again, join our monthly subscription.

How about if you'd have to pinch your contacts to zoom in and out?


VeryJoyfulHeart59 t1_j9tryf1 wrote

I think that's sort of what you're doing, except using eye muscles instead of fingers.


TheCoolDean t1_j9ps0ch wrote

:O I stopped using it only after two years because of dry eye syndrome!

Edit : wow, why are there so many downvotes, I was just surprised and so I shared my experience..


RodamusLong t1_j9pn6n8 wrote

I can't believe no one has come up with digital glasses that auto focus and zoom in and stuff.

Need this to take the place of regular prescription glasses. Tired of spending so much on them all the time.


issawildworld t1_j9u1kib wrote

No one has come up with it, or no one has come up with it? 🤔


GriffinFlash t1_j9qxqgq wrote

Me blinking constantly due to eye irritation and constantly zooming in and out making the world spin around me.

I am assuming it's for close up and not far away because that would be impossible. Sorry to crush your guy's dreams

I'm one of those people who double-blinks when I'm stressed or confused. This would definitely make me more aware of the habit!

And it costs a lot less than six million dollars.

All the times I have double tapped on objects to zoom in… I could just be double blinking?!


momolamomo t1_j9riy4i wrote

Until it bugs out and switches between zoom and static forcing you to take them out


Dubanx t1_j9s6s7w wrote

Even if it works as intended, you're probably going to blink twice on occasion. Imagine driving and accidently blinking twice.
