Philips Research has developed lenses that focus without mechanical moving parts. These lenses operate just like human eyes, using internal fluids to change shape and focus.

Phillips demonstrated the technology earlier this month during the CeBIT conference in Hanover, Germany. It plans to begin manufacturing these lenses in large volumes in coming years.
