Like Zooming In Using Multitouch But For Print

Ever wanted the text of your local newspaper BIGGER? Reading glasses don't always cut it. But this reading magnifier can! It zooms in 2.2-3.4x without distorting the text. It's like zooming in with a DSLR lens. Or using multitouch on print.

It's called the Menas Zoom and promises to not have the distortion that plagues most regular magnifying glasses. How? According to them:

The curvature of the upper meniscus lens does the trick. The aspherical lens underneath creates the crystal-clear, distortion-free image and the high zoom factor. No need to tediously focus like you would with a regular magnifying glass.

A tad bit expensive at roughly $US135 but if it works, goodbye old eyes, kinda. [Menas Zoom via The Awesomer]
