It's absolutely the stuff of science fiction: a contact lens that zooms on your command.
But scientists at the University of California at San Diego have pushed it and made it a reality. You have created a contact lens that is controlled by eye movements and that can be increased by blinking twice.
How is this possible? In the simplest case, scientists have measured the electrooculographic signals that are generated when the eyes perform certain movements (up, down, left, right, blink, double flash), and create a soft biomimetic lens that directly addresses these electrical impulses responding. The created lens could change its focal length depending on the generated signals.
Therefore, the lens could literally zoom in a jiffy.
Incredible, the lens works regardless of whether the user can see or not. It's not about the sight, it's about the electricity that is generated by certain movements.
Why create this? Why not to hell? The researchers believe that this innovation could be used in the future for "visual prostheses, adjustable glasses and remote-controlled robotics", but I am waiting for them to appear at the CSI Miami. Could you imagine what crimes Ice-T could do with these things?
