People come in almost all shapes and sizes that you can possibly imagine. For the most part, however, they are put in the category of either being short or tall. In either case, there are problems that can exist and some complaints may take place. For example, tall individuals may have difficulty taking pictures with regular sized or short individuals. On the other hand, short people have a wide range of problems that can really be difficult. Thankfully, an inventor is now taking on those problems in style.
His name is Dominic Wilcox and you may not have heard of him before, but you are about to love what he does. Sure, he may be a little bit eccentric but the glasses that he just invented our going to make a lot of short people happy. When you stop to think about the fact that short people have a lot of problems in crowds, these glasses can really make a difference. You may even want a pair for yourself.
One of the biggest problems is being in a crowd of people and not being able to see anything except the back of people’s heads. If you aren’t in the front of the line, it doesn’t really matter where you are, you aren’t going to be able to see.
That is where Dominic Wilcox comes in. He put together a pair of glasses that takes on the problem in style.
They are known as the 1 Foot Taller glasses and are essentially devices that use mirrors in order to function as a periscope. Yes, you may look a little stupid when you are wearing them but then again, you will be able to see like never before. Dominic is considered to be a tall person but he had an experience that showed him how important it was to make this invention.
“I was standing at a gig and turned to see a small woman dancing away but unable to see the band. This gave me the inspiration to design a way for people to see over obstacles such as tall people like me. It works well, though dancing with it on might be a challenge.”
The glasses are still experimental and we don’t know if they are going to be publicly available at this time. Then again, how difficult could it be to make a pair of your own? The sky is really the limit.
