Grandson creates special glasses for his grandmother

About the solution

Magniglass uses a camera, micro-computer, and media glasses to give the user control over the brightness, saturation, and zoom of the world around them. The micro-computer is running an advanced algorithm that delivers a smooth yet responsive user interface. The glasses are currently in the late prototyping phases and will hit the market as soon as possible.

Christopher was an 8th grade student. He launched a Kickstarter campaign, and raised $4,726 for his invention, Magniglass.

According to the inventor, most of that money was spent on a 3D printer to create the device. After a lot of research and trial and error over several months, the student not only won "Best in Show" at his science fair, he's enhanced his grandmother's quality of life.

Christopher said since he went public with the invention, interest has poured in from all over the world. He says there is still work to be done to perfect and patent the product. His goal is to mass produce Magniglass and make it affordable, possibly around $1,500 apiece. The device is patent pending.
