Do you need an excuse to spend even more time on your tablet? Contrary to popular belief, new research suggests that regular tablet exposure can dramatically improve your vision. Using a perceptual learning app four times a week can cause the brain to see at up to three times the distance of a normal observer. Now that's magic.


Dear Lifehacker, I am looking to buy a tablet for my two year-old son. He has worked out how to use my Gnex and my Xoom with no problems, and I would like to get him his own device.

Thanks, Tablet Parent
