Space Technology Promises Spectacular Fitting Lenses
The International Space Station has recently started working on the improvement of corrective lenses, also
known as ophthalmic lenses, in order to better the ease and fitting of them. After creating a software for the job, which simultaneously speeds up the process as no human calibration is required, greater precision can be expected in the lenses.
As Electronics 360 explained, this advancement is described to be unintentional or thoroughly thought. It was purely accidental as the head of the European Space Administration used his glasses on the unit, discovering that it gave much better accuracy and precision for measuring optical lenses than the technology and instruments they currently had on board.
This led to another company, partnered with the ESA, to work on this realization of the CEO ESA, to come up with machinery which examines ophthalmic lenses with even greater and sharper degree of accuracy. Such detailed measurements are extremely significant and can even be utilized for quality control. Perhaps a future optician would be using this device to cater to his patients' needs and provide the most fitting and accurate sized lenses, according to BBC.
The development and advancement of space technologies have inspired the improvement in the manufacture of countless products across various other industries. The latest inspiration comes in the form of an optical measurement device. The items that were deemed useless including memory foam and portable wireless vacuums are coming in handy now.
All these awe-inspiring devices were manufactured because of the innovative technology made by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The possibilities now are endless. With the high technology instruments and scientific advancements inspired by the International Space Station, a plethora of industrial and medical technologies, among others, are now being created, paving new roads to scientific breakthroughs.
