article imageResearchers develop display which corrects itself to your vision

By Walter McDaniel     Jul 31, 2014 in Technology
Berkeley - Experiments with vision and technology have yielded a display which can change to fit your eyes. Early research does not answer all the questions but provides a promising start for future vision technology.
Researchers created the device by putting a pinhole display between two layers of plastic. By manipulating light across this area using computational algorithms the image can fit into your eyes when it reaches them. Once it has been properly distorted to match your vision capabilities you are able to see it normally. Early research covers only how to make images clear.
Studies conducted with a camera simulated a farsighted person. It was able to adjust for this setup. At the same time the study says nothing about adjusting to the human eye or to the eyes of multiple humans in the product. Research came from the University of California at Berkely where students and scientists study topics like this regularly.
Theoretically versions of this in the far future could include a retinal scanner as well. Companies such as BeyondTrust are attempting to put these in commercial security applications. Previously we only used this in security but if designers can find a way to properly transfer the information into a self-correcting display it would also have applications in normal business.
Evidence shows that there is a market for this among the less visually impaired since we are already working on solutions for the severely visually impaired with Automated Tellers that talk to you.
