World Without Glasses

By: Ethan and Anthony Nguyen

What about Glasses

Today we will be talking about how glasses affected the world and how they would change the world without the invention of them. This is how Anthony and I feel about how glasses affects the world and how the world would be without them

Positive About a World Without Glasses

It would be hard to imagine a world without glasses but here is some of the good things....

1. People would take better care of their eyesight

2. More people would have better eyesight without anything helping them see

3. People would invests much less money because they wouldn't have to buy anything.

Negative About a World Without

Negative of have a world without glasses would be....

1. More car accident would happen because people cannot see.

2. More people would fail or flunk their classes due to poor or bad eyesight

3. Some modern and future technology would not be available such as the innovated Google Glasses.

4. We would have other material that magnify such as the microscope with help us cure for any outbreaks and diseases.

Past Chain Reactions

1.As early as 1845 Sir John Herschel suggested the idea of contact lenses, though he evidently did nothing about it.

The practical application of a lens to the eyeball did not occur until late in the century, when F. E. Muller, a German maker of glass eyes, blew a protective lens to place over the eyeball of a man whose lid had been destroyed by cancer.

Through this discovery people were allowed to see clearly and feel more comfortable.

2. In the 1700s, eyeglasses were made by hand by Benjamin Franklin, in 1784.

The century's most important contributions to eyeglasses were the invention of side or temple pieces that rest over the ear.

This allowed glasses to stay on better and allowed people to learn how to make glasses.

Conclusion: In a world without glasses people wouldn’t learn how to make glasses and couldn’t see clearly.

3. The early simple "microscopes" which were only magnifying glasses had one power, usually about 6x - 10x. One thing that was very common and interesting to look at, were fleas and other tiny insects, hence these early magnifiers called "flea glasses".

Around the 1590s 2 dutch people added several lenses in the tube and made a important discovery. The object near the end of the tube appeared to be greatly enlarged, much larger than any simple magnifying glass could achieve by itself.

This allowed scientist to research about magnifying glasses.

Conclusion: In a world without microscopes we wouldn’t be able to learn about tiny things like fleas or germs.

4.While shades have existed in some form since the 1300s, it wasn't until the 1930s that the sunglasses craze took hold, as more and more Americans and Europeans went on beach vacations.

It was made by a man called Sam Foster and he sold the first modern-day shades, a pair of Foster Grants, on the Atlantic City Boardwalk in 1929.

This allowed people to block their eyes from the sun.

Conclusion:In a world without sunglasses many people would not be able to relax at the beach when the sun is shining on them.

5. The single lens eyeglass, or monocle, was introduced in the eighteenth century but attained its greatest popularity in nineteenth-century Europe as an emblem of aristocratic arrogance.

The monocle was usually worn around the neck on a string, ribbon, or chain so it wouldn’t fall off easily.

It was used to peer down on others with an air of superiority, and when placed on the eye, a person was forced to squint in an awkward manner to hold it in place.

Conclusion: In a world without monocles many people would be not looked down at and wouldn’t have to squint their eyes very often

Present Chain Reactions

1. According to Yates and Suddell most spectacle lenses today are actually made of plastic. This is to prevent them breaking, and make them lighter in weight.

This is a great way to make glasses because they are harder to break and are light on your face so people feel more comfortable.

This is a great substitute for lens because of its light weight (about half the weight of glass), low cost and excellent optical qualities, CR-39 plastic remains a popular material for eyeglass lenses even today

Conclusion: In a world without these lens glasses would be cost more and some people could not afford glasses and some people would feel more uncomfortable because of the weight of the original glasses.

2. At the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show earlier in January, wearable digital technology was the darling of the show.While most of the buzz was around smart watches, Google Glass remained a status symbol worn by some geeks attending the show. The yet-young “smart glasses” scene even boasted new entrants by major players like Sony and Epson.

This allowed Google to announce that Tony Fadell, the father of the iPod while at Apple and the CEO of smart-home device maker Nest Labs, which Google acquired last year, would undertake the Glass re-boot.

This let smart glasses for healthcare applications got another boost in the form of Augmedix, a startup with the aim of providing medical professionals with a Glass-powered records management solution.

Conclusion:In a world without smart glasses many doctors may not be able to help their patients.

3. In Keck Observitory there are twin teloscopes thats are controlled by NASA.

The telescopes are used for looking at the stars and planets around us.

This will allow scientist to be able to study the areas around earth and maybe allow them to see asteroids if they might be coming towards us.

Conclusion:In a world without telescopes scientist will not be able to study the stars.



Future Chain Reactions

1.Google is making a new piece of technology and it’s called the Google Glasses.

This is a new piece that could that could help with the future of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and Augmented Reality or just hype.

This is a great idea for the future because this could

Conclusion: In a world without these the future for Humans and technology would be hard to see and imagine because we wouldn’t have glasses.

2. West of Stanford University, a band of engineers and designers are creating the future. At least that is what they hope. Meta has been developing augmented reality, 3D glasses that combine the power of a laptop and smartphone in a pair of thick Ray-Bans and a small pocket computer.

This is a great invention for the future because this could help designs and architects out for the future too.

This is a hopeful produced that might cost a lot but will help out in the future.

Conclusion: In a world without this in the future designers and architects would have to work harder and they would work hard.

3.Meta enables a "natural interface," using your hands to shape an object and navigate the application with low latency and high dexterity.

High up in the hills of Portola Valley, Calif., west of Stanford University, a band of engineers and designers are creating the future. At least that is what they hope. For the last several months, Meta has been developing augmented reality, 3D glasses that combine the power of a laptop and smartphone in a pair of thick Ray-Bans and a small pocket computer.

This will let people go In an augmented reality environment, the world of physical objects is rendered virtually, and those virtual objects, such as a phone, drawing program, or tabletop game, are controlled by your hands. Similar to the movie portrayals of computing in "Iron Man" and "Avatar," you can touch and move 3D holograms directly with your hands in 3D space.

Conclusion:In a world without Meta people wouldn’t be able to control and move 3d holograms.

4. For those who find Google Glass indiscreet, electronic contact lenses that outfit the user’s cornea with a display may one day provide an alternative.Built by researchers at several institutions, including two research arms of Samsung, the lenses use new nanomaterials to solve some of the problems that have made contact-lens displays less than practical.

The researchers tested these lenses in rabbits—whose eyes are similar in size to humans’—and found no ill effects after five hours. The animals didn’t rub their eyes or grow bloodshot, and the electronics kept working.

This allowed scientist to do more research to animals and let people wear electronic contacts in the future.

Conclusion:In a world without electronic contacts many people couldn’t see better and may not hurt their eyes with the lenses.

5. Astronomers hope that some of the techniques in development during the past two decades for the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) can be reapplied later for even larger observatories able to produce unprecedented resolution of distant phenomena, including star birth and the atmospheres of planets orbiting other stars.

While engineers struggle to meet a 2018 launch deadline for the 6.5-meter (21-ft.), $8.8 billion JWST, small groups of scientists are looking for ways to use the sophisticated technology in that infrared instrument to launch an aperture almost twice as large.

This will allow scientist to discover the whole space because sending people into space can be dangerous if they lose oxygen or an accident may happen.

Conclusion:In a world without future telescopes many people may not get hurt in space easily.


The conclusion that Anthony and I made is that a world without glasses is a terrible thing and without the glass stone and glasses the world would been in chaos from destruction of blind or near blinded people and scientist and other people in the medical field would have a harder time finding and curing diseases because of the lack magnifications. So a world without glasses and magnifications would be a bad thing.
