Corrector screen that adapts to the individual's vision
In the future, wearing glasses in front of a screen may be a memory. Researchers at UC Berkeley have created a screen prototype that can adapt the image to the visual impairment of a user and not the other.

Here is an invention that will definitely appeal to holders of eyeglasses or contact lenses . In the future, rather than having to bring in to work at a computer or watching a video, for example, this is what you could adapt its display to the visually impaired user. www.enjoycoloring.com In any case that offer researchers from the University of California, Berkeley (United States). Directed by Brian Barsky, they are indeed able to create a matrix that is superimposed on a screen in order to apply corrections for accurate visual impairment.
With glasses prescription, the light will appear correctly on the retina at the back of the eye , not in front of it in case of myopia , for example. Once applied to a screen, the matrix developed by the team itself is the work of correction. It's sort of like if you had placed the glasses directly on the screen. This matrix consists of a 3D printed filter that is micro-perforated holes having a diameter of 75 microns . They are spaced 390 microns. This filter is placed between two surfaces of acrylic transparent , one of the layers is used to remove the matrix from the surface of the screen.
This video produced in English by one of the researchers at the University of California, Berkeley presents the method for correcting the display of a screen to fit the view of a user. © Fu-Chung Huang
