Thirunarayanan: "Reading-Glasses" Of The Future (10 Dec 2005)
Sooner or later, as my aging eyes begin to fail, I will need the help of spectacles or glasses to read books, newspapers and other documents in print as well as in electronic formats. As I pondered the inevitability of having to wear glasses to read, I wondered what it would be like to wear what I call "reading-glasses" instead of reading glasses.

By "reading-glasses" I mean glasses made in the future that can read to people, as opposed to reading glasses that people use to help them read. The technology needed to create such reading-glasses is already here. All that remains is for someone to put the different existing technologies into one device to make my vision of reading-glasses a reality.
