Designer Makes ‘Periscope Glasses’ To Give Short People Height At Events

Dominic Wilcox, a London-based designer has invented a pair of periscope glasses that allows the wearer to see over the top of people at an event. Recognized as a One Foot Taller Glasses, it enables users to see an estimated 30.5 centimeters above the normal eye range, thus surmounting the heads of the taller attendee who normally block the view at an event.

The glasses also entail a smaller mirror positioned upwards at a 45-degree angle towards a large mirror which points outwards.  

The invention, however, began after Wilcox was challenged by Microsoft Surface to solve some daily problems with unique strategies. 

An idea of the Periscope glass did strike him when he attended a music gig and saw short individuals struggling to see what was happening at the stage.

“I was standing at a gig and turned to see a small woman dancing away but unable to see the band due to the tall people in front of her,” Wilcox said.

The Periscope Glasses isn’t available for purchase yet but was shown at the D&AD Festival in May.
