Saving The Eyesight

Children are stubborn and they don’t understand that viewing the computer (or TV) screen from too near a distance can affect their eyesight. As a victim of wearing glasses right from the eight grade, I have learnt this the hard way too. So designers Zhichao Xue & Chen Yizi have a very clever solution at hand. Place the I-CARE sensor on top of any screen and it keeps a check on the distance from which a person is viewing the screen. When the distance is less than 50 cm, the screen blurs up, forcing the person to step back for a crystal clear display.

I-CARE uses the human instinct rather than the preaching of the parents, and it can make the children take the initiative to adjust to the appropriate distance, so as to protect their eyes.

I-CARE is a 2012 Liton Award Winning entry

    You can not hurt your eyes sitting too close. That is an urban myth and does not cause people to need glasses.

    I think this is so clever. Who’s to say what damage future screen technology may have on the eyes. Besides, it encourages good posture (it would for me anyway). Studies also show we are spending more time in front of
    a computer screen than that
    accounted for in the debunk-the-myth evidence.

    People are
    more
    gullible buying bottled water.

    I’m legally blind (since birth) and HAVE to sit that close to a computer screen. This product would not work for me.

  • If there are, shut off the water connection and repeat whatever step should fix the leak.
    The possibilities are endless with today’s line of hardware, woodworking and project supplies.

    Consider a walk-in pantry or an oversized wall cabinet that’s at
    least 36 inches wide and 24 inches deep.

  • Will the doctor performing blind dissection be able to adequately account
    for this variability in the average patient and will he risk operating on an unwary patient in whom these differences might be
    profound. Redheads and folks with course hair will typically
    be higher shedders than blondes or those with fine hair.

    Oils that are perfect for sealing are Olive oil, jojoba oil, safflower oil or castor oil.

  • However, when choosing a plastic surgeon some things are to be kept in mind.
    The “Basketball Wives LA” star also made waves recently
    when she appeared with Drake and Blake Griffin in a skit for
    the ESPY Awards. The replacement device is called the Edwards SAPIEN transcatheter and is quite strong.

  • If it makes you feel better about yourself, then I say do it,” she said of her rhinoplasty. A nose job is really well-known due to the fact people think that any difficulties with it are very apparent to other folks simply because of its vantage position proper in front of the face. In particular, changes were noted in the ways patients perceived their own voices, and their emotional responses to them.

    Tanning allows you to experiment with different styles and
    looks. One should remember that perspiration will cause uneven tanning.
    However, with all those plucking and re-growing
    of eyebrows, the hair follicles could be damaged
    causing it to stop from growing back.
