Joint Seminar by ECE Department, HKUST SID Student Chapter and SKL - Autofocal eyewear: innovative vision correction as a platform for novel smart glass functionalities

4:00pm - 5:00pm
Zoom Meeting ID: 959 0915 2955, Passcode: 22062022

Morrow’s Autofocal eyewear tackles the intrinsic trade off multifocal/progressive eyewear users are faced with, being higher reading power and reduced field of view. In the first part of this talk, we’ll introduce the integration challenges that were overcome to make conventional prescription glasses ’smart’, and explain how our product is kept simple but meticulously geared towards the needs of our customers. In the second part, we’ll reflect on the potential roadmap towards more functionalities, and how a collaborative crossover with AR/VR parties might look like.
