If you use or need bifocals, you'd probably like to get rid of them forever. New technology will soon make that possible.
When you hit your 40's, you may have to pick up a pair of these reader glasses to see things close up, but take them off when you look at things far away. If that's you, no one needs to remind you how frustrating that can be.
Deep Optics, an Israeli company calls its new technology "omnifocals". They use optical sensors on the bridge that actually control the lens based on where your eye is looking.
The company’s YouTube video explains the OmniFocals, saying the glasses have two hidden optical sensors on the glasses frame that constantly analyze the eye's pupillary distance which changes whenever we try to focus on a different depth in our field of vision.
The sensors then send the information to processors that eventually adjust the lens to bring things in focus, no matter where you look. The company says a person wearing the glasses can see words in a book clearly and when the user looks up at another person or a television, the sensors adjust the lens so it is in focus.
Deepoptics raised 4 million dollars in funding to continue the development. There’s no word on when omnifocal glasses could come to the market.
There’s finally an official Apple response to a question we've all asked: if i close an app on my phone, will it make the battery last longer? People have debated this for sometime.
An iPhone user got to the bottom of it, emailing Apple CEO Tim Cook, asking if he swiped the apps closed and whether the practice affects battery life.
Cook didn't respond but the head of Apple's software development did, returning the email with the answer. No he doesn’t, and no it doesn’t affect battery life.
