The new lens, which is much thinner than a piece of paper, is not made of glass or plastic like current lenses, but of a thin sheet of LCD crystals coated with a light sensitive compound. Tiny shocks of electricity can change the shape of the lens to adjust focus or zoom. The researchers are currently seeking partners to prototype and manufacture the lens."</i><br /><br />This sounds pretty interesting. Though perhaps a bit off in the future it is good news for phones which have notoriously bad cameras currently.
