    Android Coming To Eye Doctors Via MIT Technology

    Android Coming To Eye Doctors Via MIT Technology

    02. Jul, 2010 written by Nick Gray | AndroidAndMe.com




    While the Android OS is being used by developers to deliver information and entertainment, the guys over at MIT are using the open platform to help bring the world into focus.


    Some of you might recall MITís Bokodes technology which they hope will replace all of todayís various barcodes. Well, it turns out that the 3D/holographic nature of Bokodes technology can also be used to measure variations in eye sight. With the help of a $2 optical box and an application that runs on Android, MITís NETRA system is able to measure oneís prescription very similarly to a Shack-Hartman sensor (minus all the lasers and the huge price tag).

    This ties in with something I posted before on the Army looking to use Droids and android platform phones to enhance the soldier and better link the battlefield. The point is, we are just at the tip of the iceberg of what android can do. Unbelievable isn't it. I for one will be buying stock in a few new things in the near future.
