Near Sighted VR Augmented Aid App | Android
A new app for Android phones hopes it’s foreshadowing a future in which traditional reading glasses are replaced by electronic image enhancement devices. The Near Sighted VR Augmented Aid app requires a head mount for the smartphone that can be bought for cheap or you can build one yourself out of cardboard. The app uses the phone’s camera to zoom in on the scene in front, effectively addressing near sightedness. Of course it won’t replace glasses since we can’t imagine many people willing to wear such gear in their everyday activities. Nevertheless, similar technology may one day be compacted into a more reasonable form factor. Coupled with high end optics and image processing algorithms, we may end up with glasses that can work intelligently for different visual conditions.
