A team of engineers at the University of Utah have developed a pair of smart glasses with liquid lenses that can automatically adjust to a person’s prescription. The glasses pair with a smartphone app that lets the user manually set the prescription, and the lenses can automatically switch between two prescriptions using piezoelectric actuation based on what the wearer is looking at.
The team published a paper about the glasses and how they work in journal Optics Express.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
