THE FUTURE IN FOCUS 2015 - PHOTO GALLERY
Las Vegas, NV, September 15, 2015—The second annual “The Future in Focus” showcase for game-changing vision care technologies was staged here at the Venetian Hotel before a sell-out crowd of optical luminaries from every corner of the industry. In addition to presentations of five new vision care innovations, Dr. Richard Clompus updated the audience on the progress of last year’s inventors and their projects. Dr. Paul Karpecki provided the keynote address on the growth of wearable devices, eyewear in particular, and the day’s program finished with a panel discussion about changing the optical landscape with disruptive ideas, methodologies and products.
Just before the concluding networking reception, the audience voted to select the inventions that were “Most Innovative,” and “Most Poised for Success.” The first award went to Dr. Brian Barsky, Univ. of California/Berkley, for his presentation on Prescription Programmable Displays; the second was awarded to David Lowe, WITricity, on his demonstration of Mobile Wireless Power.
“The Future in Focus” is a yearly event which immediately precedes Vision Expo West. The 2016 event is tentatively slated for Tuesday, September 13, 2016 at the Venetian Hotel.
