RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
Somebody needs to invent a way to change my computer screen's focus so I don't have to wear my glasses while lying in bed. They always stab my head and make my ear so uncomfortable. It'd be much more convenient if I could just adjust the screen to work for my crappy eyes.

If you're using Windows you can hold down the Ctrl key while scrolling the mouse button and the screen will zoom in and out.

The problem is that it's not a tractable problem.

Bad vision is caused when the eye lens can't focus incident rays onto the retina properly; near/farsightedness being when it works for some incident angles but not others.

In theory it's possible to bend the outgoing light rays from the screen in such a way as to compensate for the eye's inability to bend them properly.

But it's impossible to "fix" with software; a monitor can't bend light. So what you'd need is some sort of variable optical density interface fitted over the hardware . Basically a big adjustable lens over the screen itself... which would be really finicky, really complicated, and really expensive.

But in theory it's possible!

It's just that by the time such a thing would be practical we'll probably be able to grow new eyes in a jar anyway.

It's still useful 'cos no one wants to go around with a jar stuck to their face.

No

You take them out of the jar when they're done growing, morondog.

And then put them back in at night, like dentures, right?
