Are you considered a “shorty”? Or do you have a friend who always has to stand on their toes to see anything over crowds?
Then it can be difficult to properly watch a concert if you end up behind a 2-meter giant. But now the solution is finally here!
The inventor Dominic Wilcox has created the periscope-inspired glasses “One Foot Taller” which extends your eyes height about… you guessed it, one foot up. Letting shorter people watch things from a taller perspective.
The glasses add one foot to the wearer’s height and act as a periscope extending up into the air and giving a better overview of what is going on. Perfect if you have ended up in a crowd or behind a very tall creature.
Stop being a shorty
Dominic Wilcox talks about the inspiration that founded the invention.
“I was at a concert and turned around to see a little woman dancing, she was having fun but couldn’t actually see the band. It gave me the idea to design a way for people to see over obstacles such as tall people like me. It works well, but dancing with them can be a challenge,” he said.
Wilcox created the design so the smaller mirror in front of you reflects what the larger mirror above captures.
This should give the wearer a clearer picture of what is going on in front of them. The unique glasses were first shown at an exhibition in London. The attending inventors were asked to come up with extraordinary solutions to everyday problems.
“Creativity is important because the world has many problems and challenges, and we need a lot more people with creative solutions to solve them,” said Wilcox according to The Mirror.
