POSSIBLE good news for the thousands of people who suffer from chronic short- sightedness. I recently reported that Willy Johnson, an inventor, had devised the television equivalent of the Sony Walkman, called Gogglevox. He is deep in talks with Japanese and US manufacturers. The British, as ever, have been slow in coming forward for this TV innovation.

Now he tells me Gogglevox, which looks like a pair of blackened ski goggles but is actually a miniature screen on the inside, may help many people who are so severely short-sighted as to be registered blind. He has discovered that a micro- camera can be mounted on the goggles to show them where they are going. He is open to offers . . . British manufacturers included.
