Very interesting!

But I think I will keep my recent lenses for the time being. Maybe after Christmas...:-)

Wonder if they will ever be able to make anything of it. I've seen several interesting breakthroughs announced, but not all of them make it down to commercial use level. It's definitely an interesting discovery.

Just another gizmo that won't be put into production, I remember when flexible lenses and liquid lenses were "going to be in products within the next 2 years" but they never surface outside of a university lab. Why invest in a new product, when the old one still sells so well... it's all about profit these days, there's little love for their craft anymore.
