Awesome.
 
Recently,  +Raphael Rouvinov and myself created a low cost medical treatment for lazy eye that uses Google Cardboard at MHacks IV(a weekend technology competition where it won "Most Innovative"!). It uses Cardboard in place of expensive VR headsets for the treatment, making it feasible for people to adults to treat their lazy eye in their own homes for the first time ever. It's based on recent research and clinical trials by R. Hess et al on treating lazy eye with Virtual Reality and video games, and it has been shown to be the only effective way to treat lazy eye in adolescents and adults. It also beats out the eye patch treatment method used in young chidren, but the VR method works on people of all ages, not just kids 12 and under. The process is simple - one eye sees part of the game while the other sees the other part: you essentially force your eyes to work together to play the game. This helps your dominant eye become less dominant and your lazy eye become less 'lazy' until you reach binocular vision again.
The app is almost ready to ship, we plan on releasing it for free, and it currently features Tetris.
Here's an outdated screenshot - it's from 2 weeks ago at MHacks. 
Comment any suggestions or whether you wanna be notified when it comes out.
If you have friends or family with lazy eye, tell them about it!

Daniel Jennings | Off The Grid News A growing number of farmers are abandoning genetically modified seeds, but it’s not because they are ideologically opposed to the industry. Simply put, they say non-GMO crops are more productive and profitable. Modern Farmer magazine discovered that there is a movement among farmers abandoning genetically modified organisms (GMO) because of simple economics. […]

I don't know how to help this guy, anyone out there able?
So I had a huge lapse in judgment and made a huge mistake today. Usually - no problem: go back and fix it. But I went to fire up my Jumper and lo and behold it's broken and I'm in the wrong century to get it fixed. Any other hoppers hanging around the Warming Age with technical experience to ...
