Would you believe? The Next Web writes:

Scientists from the University of California, San Diego, have created a new robotic soft contact lens that lets you zoom by blinking twice. The lens can be controlled by your eye movements.

Of course, it’s a long way from the lab to commercial production. For now, it’s probably destined for use by spies. Or pilots.

    I should add, having spent some time at the UCSD campus, La Jolla is lovely, and a break place for scuba diving (Blacks Beach) quite near the campus. Given their push for the sciences, including basic science research, I’m not surprised to see this type of innovation.

    I appreciate the nod to Get Smart, with the ‘Would you believe?’

    One can only hope that the zoomable contact lens works better than did the Cone of Silence.
