TabTimes had an interesting article the other day that talked about the future of reading on tablets. TabTimes discussed whether a tablet could adjust to a person reading on it and therefore render glasses unnecessary.

Apparently, scientists are working on just that type of tablet that would have a “vision-correcting screen” that would distort to the viewer’s level of vision which would eliminate the need for reading glasses to use the tablet.

“The technology relies on complicated software and algorithms that change the light that a screen emits to distort the image a user sees. This new technology would alter the image (factoring in more than just brightness) so that the viewer would not need to put on a pair of glasses.” - TabTimes

On August 12, the team of scientists will present a prototype at the International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques in Vancouver, Canada.
