Iris is a biological tissue that can change the pupil size to stabilize light transmission into the eye. In article number 1701814, Hao Zeng, Arri Priimagi and co-workers report an artificial iris made of radially photo-aligned liquid crystal elastomer. This soft device is capable of self-regulating its aperture size in response to changing incident light intensity.
