    Note: Much larger version HERE in case you're actually an optometrist and want to print it out and use it. This is a sci-fi eye chart. WTF's a sci-fi eye chart? I'm glad you asked, because now I have the perfect opportunity to try out this new copy/paste feature my teacher j... / Continue →

    These adaptive-lens eyeglasses were designed by Adlens to correct almost anybody's vision, all with the simple twist of a knob. Holy shit, technology! (Call me when there's a monocle version) How they work: The lenses are hollow, with a plastic sheet stretched across it on t... / Continue →

    But not really. I'd actually feel cooler wearing Geordi La Forge glasses because at least then people would think they're x-ray specs when I'm staring at their crotch and laughing. Now they just think I'm a creep. Look3D is one of a handful of companies readying "designer" 3... / Continue →

    When I was 12 I was convinced this is what the future would look like. Needless to say, I've had to develop some pretty serious defense mechanisms to deal with disappointment in the past 16 years. But I haven't given up -- I WILL be blinded by science laser aereolas. Or die ... / Continue →

    Now we've known about eyeball tattoos for awhile now, just not that people were getting them done in the slammer. Honestly, there are just some things I just wouldn't want to get done in prison: my ass, and every single other thing ever. But did that stop David Boltjes and Pa... / Continue →

    So allegedly there's a new eye surgery that allows patients to achieve 'HD vision'. Weird, I thought all vision was high definition. But what the hell do I know? I'm no ophthalmologist, I'm just a guy that spiced up an ordinarily boring eyeball graphic with LASER VISION!!! ... / Continue →

    You know what I hate about bicycling? All the pedaling. I have tiny chicken legs and can't even pedal my Big Wheels to the mailbox without running out of steam and crashing into the azaleas. But for your hardier folk, the LightLane is a little laser system that attaches to y... / Continue →

    Born without ears? Lose them in a samurai sword fight? Whatever the case, for those of you who have found yourself both aurally and ocularly challenged, you may want to consider pierced glasses. Pierced glasses are a pair of prescription eyeglasses that stay affixed to your ... / Continue →

    Ron is a 73-year old who went blind 30 years ago due to mysterious circumstances (the article didn't say). He hasn't been able to see anything since. I'm talking nothing. Pure blackness. But now, thanks to bionic eye surgery, he can finally see the light (again). Did someb... / Continue →

    Nong Youhui is a Chinese boy who was born with cat eyes that glow in the dark and enable him to see like a cat in the night (possibly as a result of nuclear waste). He can allegedly see as well in the dark as you can in the light. Except -- WICKA-POW! -- now you can't see shi... / Continue →

    Remember the story a few weeks ago of the artist woman that wanted a webcam installed in her eyeball? Well it turns out she may have been beat to the chase (and subsequent fall and eye gouging) by Steve Mann, who is *this close* to having the procedure done. Check out the Eye... / Continue →

    Allegedly David Steele, a pervert, is selling 30 and 58mm lens filters capable of seeing through many kinds of fabric. I've got the feeling they only work with sheer wet t-shirts and fishnets, but whatever: boobs yo, boobs. Each lens costs $200 and purchase includes a free tr... / Continue →

    This is Microsoft's latest (and longest, at 4:30) commercial featuring Jerry Seinfeld and Bill Gates. I found it moderately entertaining. But what I really took away from the experience was this: if Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld ever stayed at my place, I'd rob those suckers ... / Continue →

    Ever wanted to be a bat boy? Me too, but the local minor league team said I couldn't because of my club foot. So I'm going to have to settle for making my own ultrasonic batgoggles (not to be confused with lobster-vision). What you see above is a homegrown device that enabl... / Continue →

    Finally, bionic vision. I've been waiting for this technology forever, and apparently it's right around the corner, waiting to pounce on me like a mugger. We have a group of electrical engineers from the University of Washington to thank for this awesome step into the future... / Continue →
