Guy Invents The ‘One Foot Taller Periscope Glasses’ That Allow Short People To See The World From Above

I have a friend who is 6’6 ″ (around 200cm) and each time we find a spot in the crowd at a concert, I can listen to people behind us tick in anger. It turns out, this issue is way more common than we assumed.

I have a friend who is 6’6 ″ (around 200cm) and each time we find a spot in the crowd at a concert, I can listen to people behind us tick in anger. It turns out, this issue is way more common than we assumed. Dominic Wilcox, however, has created something that should help people overcome their height disadvantage — the One Foot Taller Periscope glasses. As you might have already guessed by its name, that device allows the wearer to see ‘one foot taller’ (30.5cm) than their eye level.


Dominic said that when he is working on a project, most of the time is taken up thinking through the idea and then designing it. “I did have about five attempts at making the finished object. I cut my finished design out of a sheet of mirrored plastic then very carefully heated and bent the parts into the correct angles to reflect the light from up high, down to the eyes. I quite enjoyed working out how to make this quite unusual and functional object from one single sheet.”


After putting on the glasses, “you can see a rectangle in the center of your vision of the higher view. It’s a sort of slightly bonkers analog AR device.”
