For those who need eye glasses, and even for those who don’t. !!
You’re out for the day.
You forgot your reading glasses.
Here’s a life hack for you !!!
I don’t currently need reading glasses or any other type of eye glasses, although I wear sunglasses as often as I can to protect my eyes from the sun and glare, even to protect my eyes from strong winds .
However the fine print on some signs, products, product labels, serial numbers engraved on products and paperwork is so small, that even I need some help to read it.
So, most people carry a phone with them all the time, and 99% of those phones have a built in camera .
To help read that tiny print, I often use my phones camera to magnify the printed text, just as a magnifying glass, not to take a photo.
Of course you can take a photo, but no need to waste your phones storage, you can just use it as a magnifying viewer.
Many cameras have a quick tap from 1x, 2x to 5x zoom /enhance or you can pinch zoom to take it up even further to 10x or anything in between.
Some phones have 50+ zoom enhance.
I’ve often seen people or even been asked to read things for people because they forgot their glasses, yet they had a phone in their hand. I obliged and didn’t like to tell them to use their phone.
So if you are reading this and know someone who often forgets their glasses, consider showing them this post .
Demo Video Below
For this demo I used a phone with a standard camera zoom to 10x.
For context the lower case – a – on the box instructions is 1mm ( 0.0393700787 inch ) tall ↕️. My phone was mounted on the tripod at a distance of 400 mm ( 40cm , 15.74803148 inches) from the text on the box, a pretty standard reading distance.
