[dropcap]D[/dropcap]o you wear reading glasses? After reading this, you could be throwing them away or not.
Recently, a team of researchers from the University of California at Berkeley and MIT partnered with Microsoft in the US to create a filter that can correct the “blurry display” on digital screen.
The filter will be inserted onto your phone, tablet, laptop and other device. Then, a software is installed in the device. The program contains the algorithm for your own reading glasses prescription.
When your accurate reading glasses are placed, the filter alters the light from each pixel. When the light is fed through the hole in the plastic filter, rays of light will reach your retina to sharpen the image.
The filter works like your reading glasses and contacts. It can adjust automatically based on the specified prescription reading glasses, so that the user’s vision is clear.
Unfortunately, it is still in the works. We will need to wait five years before we can actually see and experience this type of technology.
The cost of these digital reading glasses? According to the researchers, it will probably cost less than $500.
So, start saving. When those digital reading glasses become available, you can easily obtain the technology.
