#2027: PairStare

People who have had to have a glass eye fitted can be left with a somewhat lifeless expression on one side of their face.

Today’s invention is a pair of glasses which a person with a glass eye can wear to reduce this effect.

A small camera in the frame surrounding their healthy eye can detect its angle of gaze.

This is communicated to the other half of the frame which contains a set of electromagnets.

These magnets act in concert to move a metal iris under the surface of the (static) glass eye, so as to mimic the movements of the healthy one.
