The next time you take a trip to the water cooler, just think, what you're about to drink isn't just good for hydration; it makes for a very effective, energy-efficient lens, too. That's what researchers at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have announced
after designing and testing an adaptive liquid lens—comprised of a pair of water droplets—that captures 250 pictures per second.
