Optics that use sound to shape light for better machine vision – CES 2016

NSF-funded small business Tag Optics is developing a lens that uses sound to more rapidly bring images into focus. Tag Optics co-founder and CEO Christian Theriault explains that the lens has applications for robotics, machine vision, metrology and more. The early-stage technology is funded through NSF's Small Business Innovation Research program and was featured at the 2016 International Consumer Electronics Show in the Eureka Park Marketplace.
