In an article for Wired, Media Lab director Joi Ito, a professor of the practice at MIT, discusses his decision to allow his young daughter to have screen time and the potential impact of technology on children. Ito argues that tech leaders should focus on “creating technology that makes screen entertainment healthier and fun for all families.”

Prof. Carlo Ratti speaks with David Freeman and Gwen Aviles of NBC Mach about his predictions for science and technology in 2019. “Next year will see more innovations that make technology less intrusive — a kind of screen detox,” says Ratti.


Forbes reporter Jennifer Hicks writes about MIT spinoff EyeNetra, which is developing a self-diagnostic eye test could lead to customized, virtual-reality screens. “EyeNetra’s technology measures how a user’s optical refractive errors will affect how they see patterns on a digital display, just like a VR headset,” Hicks explains. 

Scientific American

Researchers at MIT and the University of California, Berkeley, have developed a vision-correcting display that modifies the screens of smartphones or tablets to eliminate a user’s need to wear glasses, writes Rachel Nuwer for Scientific American. “The screen can correct for myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and more complicated vision problems,” she explains.

“Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have invented a glass screen that corrects bad vision, without the need for spectacles or contact lenses,” the BBC News reports. “The device is compatible with phones, tablets, TVs and even car dashboards.”

Financial Times

Clive Cookson of The Financial Times reports on the new vision-correcting display developed by researchers from MIT and the University of California, Berkeley. The technology, which automatically corrects for vision problems, “puts the glasses on the display, rather than on your head,” explains Dr. Gordon Wetzstein. 


Wired reporter Katie Collins examines the new display technology developed by MIT researchers that automatically corrects for visual defects, allowing individuals to watch TV or use their iPhone without their glasses. 


Forbes reporter Jay McGregor writes that researchers at MIT have developed a new vision-correcting display that automatically adjusts for people with visual impairments. “The idea is that the technology will predict how the users’ eyes will distort whatever is on screen and correct it beforehand,” McGregor explains. 

BBC News

BBC News reports on a new vision-correcting display developed by MIT researchers that automatically corrects to allow individuals with vision problems to use the technology without glasses. The technology operates by altering the light from individual pictures on the display based on a person’s prescription. 


David Szondy reports on how the MIT Camera Culture Group has developed a new 3-D project system that doesn’t require glasses. Szondy writes that the team sees their system, “as a transitional system that sits between current technologies and true holographic video.”
