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.
