Bringing the world upside down

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

Today I heard something really interesting. My physics teacher told me that if you wear glasses with lenses that make everything look upside down in a week, the brain will then adapt to the change, and make the upside down view seem normal. This means that when you take the glasses off, everything will look upside down until you wear the glasses again.

And no, I’m not planning to make a game about this, I am planning to try this out, just for fun. Tomorrow I am going to ask the local optician if they can help me finding such glasses and assure that it isn’t dangerous – I don’t wanna end up seeing the world upside down for the rest of my life :) . It will probably bring many difficulties, especially in school when reading, but I hope I’ll sustain it.
