Trick Your Visual Perception With The EYEteleporter

Jun 9, 2015 By Archit Tripathi

The world around us seems pretty fixed for the most part. When it comes to seeing things around you, the only point of view you can really have is your own, and that viewpoint is pretty much fixed to whatever physical height your eyes are at.

Designer and inventor Juste Kostikovaite pondered this very fact and realized that with just a few modifications, our perspective can be changed to see the three different points of view that nature never intended for us to have. 

Meet the EYEteleporter.

The EYEteleporter works with the same basic principles that enable submarine periscopes to see things above the water. Explaining it in writing would be a little tough, so check out this video to learn more:

You can even look way up and behind you.

The wooden stick locks everything in place.

Here's the full kit, deconstructed.
