Have you ever wished for eyes behind your head? For a way to see over walls and under fences? Well, now you can. Be forewarned, though, that it”s not exactly stealthy.
Juste Kostikovaite was fascinated by all the ways we don”t see, such as from viewpoints high above our heads and far below them, as well as what”s going on behind us. Her fascination led her to create the Eyeteleporter, a personal periscope made of cardboard and mirrors that can be adjusted so the wearer can see in three different ways that nature never intended. So if you”ve ever wished to know what the world looks like to someone who”s seven feet tall, or what you”d see if you were bellybutton-height, or what the world would look like both upside down and backward, this is the item for you.
Kostikovaite created the Eyeteleporter as a way for people to experience a different realm of vision and to help them see the world in a way they never thought possible. The Eyeteleporter is constructed of corrugated cardboard, an easy material to come by, and reinforced with wood and plastic. Two acrylic mirrors, one convex and one flat, make it possible to see. Of course, with your normal line of sight distorted, you may have to adjust to your new perspective, and luckily, the mirrors are made of acrylic and non-breakable, which might come in handy as having your perspective messed with might cause a few spills.
Currently, Kostikovaite”s project is seeking funding via Kickstarter, so if you”ve ever been curious about how your bellybutton sees the world, consider a donation. The Eyeteleporter is currently completed, but its creator is looking to put on some finishing touches, as well as to expand her perspective-bending projects.
