Oscar : Intelligent Visual Aid Gives You Unrestricted Vision in Everyday Situations

Our vision plays fundamental part in our everyday situations, however, with increasing age, the flexibility of eye lens deteriorates as well. Oscar is an intelligent visual aid that provides you with unrestricted vision in your daily activities, it looks like glasses, but it’s not. There are various types of visual aids such as reading glasses, magnifying glasses, or specific glasses, but the idea of switching from one to another can be a bit annoying, don’t you agree?

Ina Riedel, the designer of Oscar, suffers a visual impairment since childhood, that’s why she wants to design and develop visual aid that offers its user optimal solutions. Using innovative liquid-crystal-technology, this device becomes a unique tool that adapts dynamically to different situations. The precise curves and a distinct color scheme convey a design language of technology and prescision, this visual aid follows the zeitgeist of electronic devices.

There are 2 cameras on both front sides of the upper frame that measure distance to all objects outside visual range of user constantly. There are another 2 sensors at the interior sides of the frame to track the movements of user’s eyes. This glasses use a film of liquid crystals, therefore, they can continuously adjust by means of an electric current and change their focal point. Any object can automatically be brought into focus regardless the distance. OLED-bands on both right and left side of the frame provides illumination when needed.

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
