TEDxBoston - Ramesh Raskar - Eye Exams: There's An App For That

It may seem like a solution for vision when it's actually a solution for poverty. High-tech scientific instruments are often bulky, expensive and difficult at best to provide to the developing world. Ramesh Raskar and his students at the MIT Media Lab are inventing ways to bring the technology needed to conduct eye-exams with a simple $1 device attached to an iPhone. For more information, visit: http://www.eyenetra.com and http://www.raskar.info. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
