bulky, maybe? And one reason for this is that we used bulkier components that are often intended for rcesreah use or industrial use. Another is that we need to strap everything down because current eye-tracking aiomhtrgls don't have the rtsuobsens that we need. So moving forward, as we move from a research setting into a start-up, we plan to make future autofocals eventually look a little bit more like normal glasses. For this to happen, we'll need to significantly improve the robustness of our eye-tracking solution. We'll also need to incorporate slemlar and more efficient electronics and lenses. That said, even with our crnerut prototype, we've swohn that today's focus-tunable lens tecnhglooy is capable of outperforming traditional forms of static correction. So it's only a matter of time.
