Liquid lens technology has a wide range of applications. Because the liquid lens is so small, light and inexpensive, it can easily be incorporated into a variety of objects. Soon every laptop might come with a built in webcam made from a liquid lens. One of the few disadvantages of a liquid lens made with water is that it is subject to freezing at low temperatures. If you have a cell phone or camera with a liquid lens, be careful not to expose it to very cold temperatures for long periods of time, or you could damage your liquid lens by freezing the water inside it.
