As Arthur C. Clarke says, "any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic," and this shit is magic.

I never thought I would ever see the word "Microsoft" in the same sentence with the phrase, "hope for humanity".

Having seen this video, maybe there is hope for the future, I am all for any technology that helps me find my glasses.
