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. 

The Guardian

Luke Holland writes for The Guardian about work by the MIT Center for Ultracold Atoms to try to form 3-D structures comprised of light. “By manipulating photons, they've discovered a way of making them react with and deflect each other, essentially forming a new type of matter,” writes Holland.

Wired

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

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. 

Xinhuanet

Xinhuanet highlights a new system developed by MIT Professor Marin Soljačić  and graduate student Yichen Shen that allows for filtering light waves based on direction. This research could have major implications for solar energy technology.

New Scientist

New Scientist reporter Jacob Aron reports on how MIT researchers have developed a new system that filters light waves based on the direction they are traveling. The system could be used to take photographs of faint objects, Aron writes.
