Ever wanted the text of your local newspaper BIGGER? Reading glasses don't always cut it. But this reading magnifier can! It zooms in 2.2-3.4x without distorting the text. It's like zooming in with a DSLR lens. Or using multitouch on print.

It's called the Menas Zoom and promises to not have the distortion that plagues most regular magnifying glasses. How? According to them:

The curvature of the upper meniscus lens does the trick. The aspherical lens underneath creates the crystal-clear, distortion-free image and the high zoom factor. No need to tediously focus like you would with a regular magnifying glass.


A tad bit expensive at roughly $135 but if it works, goodbye old eyes, kinda. [Menas Zoom via The Awesomer]
