Apple is researching having adjustable lenses in “Apple Glass” that detect a wearer’s eyesight and reconfigure themselves to present the clearest vision, Apple Insider reports.
Apple had already been granted a patent for swapping out different lenses to suit wearers of an “Apple Glass” type of device.
Now, however, Apple has also been granted a patent for the potential basis of an “Apple Glass” device that does not require swapping lenses. This could mean that Apple would only have to manufacture, ship, and stock a single version of “Apple Glass.”
“Adjustable lens systems” is the newly-granted patent, and it is chiefly concerned with measuring eye characteristics, and moving lenses to match.
