Abstract
The history of adaptive optics is outlined from the concepts of 25 years ago to the many forms in which it is being applied today. Several independent paths of development are traced, leading to the emergence of a new technology that combines the disciplines of optics and electronics. Speculations are made on possible directions for the future.
