Lasers Used To Make "Eyeglasses" To Fit Fly
— Ace

Risky Buzziness, DDG headlines:

Looks kind of like Jeff Goldblum, as it turns out. I can just imagine him acting all weird as he tries to pick up Scarlett Johansen.

Some guys are working on a cure for cancer. This guy wants to cure vermin of myopia.

An entry in a German science-photo competition, this image shows a fly sporting a set of "designer" lenses crafted and set in place with a cutting-edge laser technique. The glasses fit snuggly on the fly's 0.08-inch-wide (2-millimeter-wide) head.


Micreon, based in Hannover, Germany, created the fly's eyewear using ultrafast laser micro-machining. The firm notes on its Web site that the process can create objects with high precision at scales of less than a thousandth of a millimeter.

In related news, Glenn Reynolds just had a nine minute orgasm. He's expected to fully recover within three months.

2 Actually I think it is a kind of torture for fly's. They have how many individual eyes in each orb? You think those glasses are prescribtion? or are we trying to create a new kind of fly that has such poor eyesight they suffer from constant painful headaches?

This is prolly just a very complicated plan to fight the blight of those multi-faceted-eye having insects to sow misery and discontent within their community.
