Glasses for one billion people

Was just reading this on The Guardian about a pair of glasses that can be adjusted by adding or removing fluid. I'd heard about it a year or so ago, but they have some bold plans for them - one billion people need them.

I'll still floating about deciding what area of design I'd like to end up in. But I love this - the idea of truly helping people. Democratic design.

Given the state of the economy and what will probably be the collapse of the designer art market, perhaps this is the area where designers can really contribute and an area where one day I'd like to make my contribution.
