Reversing Goggles Turn Your Whole World Upside-Down

Frankly, I think we’ve got enough problems worrying about people bumping into you on the sidewalk while they’ve got their heads bent down texting and surfing the web. If that wasn’t bad enough, now you could run into someone because the entire world is upside-down for them.

These goofy-looking goggles let you view the world upside-down. Each lens in the Reversing Goggles has a prism mounted on the end, creating a flipped view of the world in front of you. I guess the idea behind these things is to show you what images would look like if our brains didn’t figure out the backwards and upside-down images that actually fall on our retinas. They can also reverse left and right by turning the prisms 90 degrees.

Apparently, a scientist back in the 1890s attempted to wear a similar contraption for 4 days straight, and figured out that his brain eventually compensated for things and sorted the world out once again. I don’t recommend that you try the same. And no matter how much you’re tempted, don’t try and wear these while driving, skateboarding or riding a bike. But if you want to see what it might be like to do an all-day handstand, you can grab a pair of the Reversing Goggles over at Grand Illusions for £55 (~$87 USD).
