Thinking Out of the Box

This is pretty cool:

A pair of lenses that change their focal lengths based on near-far sight and modify this actively based on the task that you are performing! Amazing use of technology in a field that has not changed much over so many decades!

The simplest next step is then a pair of lenses that need not be changed at all. If your eye-power changes, the lens ‘learns’ the accurate new correction on its own and changes its focal value accordingly! Almost like a new eye-lens, only electronic, not membranous!

I was blown away…
