Polar Bears and Telescopic Eyes

I looooove cropped tees! They're my favourite trend to come out of the whole 90s-revival that's been going on, because they're the easiest thing to wear. You can pretty much style them with anything - as long as it's not low-waisted pants. They look great with high-waisted-anything (shorts, skirts, jeans and leggings), layered over dresses and especially cute when worn underneath pinafores. Add a cute animal face, and you've definitely won me over.

Here's something amazing - have you ever used a zoom lens on a camera? Or thought about using coloured eye contacts?  Now imagine putting the two together. The world's first telescopic contact lenses have just been developed.

Obviously, the lens has to be really thin to fit comfortably on your eye. This is where the technology has been hard to develop - making something this thin also have decent magnifying qualities is pretty difficult. The image has to bounce 4 times inside the lens, using mirrors, before being projected onto the back of the eye (the retina) where it is "read". Users can switch between normal and telescopic vision simply by putting on a pair of polarised 3D TV spectacles - the contact lens also has a polarising filter on its surface, and so can interact with the 3D glasses.

The glasses are intended for people suffering from macular degeneration, who find it harder to make out fine details in their vision, however you could wear them if you have healthy vision, to give yourself super-human zoom vision. Read more here.

I hope that you're all having the best of days!

  1. So cute! You know how to thrift! x

  2. Love your outfit! I really want to get on the cropped t bandwagon but I'm so nervous. I was a mom in the 90s (a hot one who could show my belly at that.) Much time has passed. lol I keep telling myself- you're not too old for the Earth but you're too old for a crop top. Dang. This cute outfit makes me wanna!

  3. The cutest shirt I've seen today, and looks wonderful on you as always :) The info was really cool, I can't believe the things that mankind can accomplish :)

  4. I stumbled upon Romwe a long time ago and completely forgot about it- thanks for reminding me! I love the return of crop tops too :)

  5. I love this combo, spunky on top and ladylike on the bottom. :)

    I wish I hop on the whole crop top bandwagon, but I definitely don't have the mid-riff for them haha

  9. First of all, love the outfit! I'm also a crop top fanatic! I agree, so handy to style and comfortable :)

    And WOW, that's some amazing technology there! I did not think it would ever be possible to create zoomable contact lenses but it seems everything's possible now!

  10. Yes! Crop tops are my new favorite revival too. I love them with anything high-waisted. Much more flattering than the cropped tops and low-rise jeans thing that went on in the early 2000's.
