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.
