Dec 31, 2008: Adapti-Glasses
This is big... or should I say this could be big... very big.
Of course there is still a lot of eye problems, like astigmatism, that these glasses won't help, but for all the people that just need magnification, whoopee.
The Cellar wishes you a Happy New Year... right people?..... Yeah.....Right.....Yes..... For sure.....Oh yes..... Happy new year everybody

Interesting idea. The lack of limit of invention in the human mind never ceases to amaze me.

I had a pair of glasses back in the 80s that looked like that, except they were bright blue. Man, I was stylin'.

The best inventions yet to be discovered are very low-tech. Simple exploitation of basic principles.

Necessity as mother of invention...yep.

I'm a sucker for using the least-complex tool available, and bending them to my will to perform a task. My wife says I like to re-invent the wheel. The truth is, I do things however makes the most sense to my nutjob brain. In fact, I have a very narrow range of functionality.

Great and hopeful IoTD to round off the year, thanks Bruce.

This is nothing new. It used to be called beer goggling.

I need some of those, Shel.

I am so thankful for vision. I have gone so far as planning to go blind for a week, for the experience, and to better appreciate my near-perfect vision, but I've never gone through with it. I wonder if my eyes would be damaged or given a well-deserved rest?

I agree with Sundae Girl: Great and Hopeful is what we need for 2009. And, let me add my appreciation for Bruce, who has been incredibly faithful in making IOTD a great place to visit. I don't post much, but I view everyday and am grateful for the inquisitive, thoughtful and slightly demented folks who make up this part of the Cellar.

I thought he was a man. But he was a muffin.

...for another year of amazing images. All the best to you & everyone else on (in?) The Cellar.

What a stunning idea!

I think this presents a great opportunity for the poor across the world if Silver succeeds. I know I've always sympathized with those who might not have access to prescription lenses, almost everyone in my family has suffered from the same pitifully weak eyesight thanks to genetics. If we were born in Africa without access to glasses growing up we probably would've been eaten by lions, or from walking off cliffs or something.

All they need is the "opti-grab" attatchment.

I got yer reference I was referring to Dana's post - context lost in type - nevermind
DanaC Wednesday Jan 7 01:34 PM
Awww *grins* I got it Classic:P
Shawnee123 Wednesday Jan 7 01:40 PM
fwiw...I got it too. I found the whole exchange hilarious. First, classic saying "what?" then capnhowdy explaining it even though it wasn't needed.

Took you awhile to think that one up, did it?

He was just building tension. It's all in the timing.
