Luquid Lenses Around the Corner

Fluid type optics could be making their way to your digital camera and phone camera with in the next few years. A company in Japan has invested money in a small US firm which will be working on this type of fluid lens technology. The company is named Holochip and they use the lens under pressure which can change the shape as needed and give a long or short focal length. With the lens being liquid, some have mentioned a worry about them freezing over. According to Holochip they can operate down to -20 degrees C which is a tad colder then the average freezer.
