Now this is genius!
Always craning your neck to see over people at concerts?
That problem could soon be eradicated thanks to Dominic Wilcox’ invention. He’s created the ‘One Foot Taller’ glasses, a pair of periscope glasses that allow you to see over the heads of people in front of you. The future is here.
They may look a bit silly but the glasses add one foot on to the wearer’s normal eye-level – meaning you’ll be able to see past that 6 foot d**khead at your favourite gig.
Dominic told LadBible all about the reasoning behind his invention:
“I was standing at a gig and turned to see a small woman dancing away but unable to see the band. This gave me the inspiration to design a way for people to see over obstacles such as tall people like me.
“It works well, though dancing with it on might be a challenge!”
The design came about after Microsoft Surface challenged inventors to come up with ‘extraordinary solutions’ for ‘everyday problems’ for an exhibition. Dominic created the glasses using a sheet of mirrored acrylic with a 45-degree bend so the smaller mirror can reflect the larger mirror.
