 Development of smart glasses that allow you to see from the back and front without turning your head

An Olympic gold medalist has developed a pair of goggles that can help cyclists see what's behind them without moving their heads.



With the help of physicist Alex MacDonald of Edinburgh, Callum Skinner developed the specifications from the initial sketches of the look after they had raised more than £ 100,000 on Kickstarter.
The team say the glasses allow cyclists to see front and back by shifting focus rather than turning their heads which also helps improve speed and aerodynamics.

HindSight uses two-part angled lenses with translucent mirrors to produce the glasses, which costs from £ 199.

The developers hope their goggles will make amateur cycling safer and give other athletes such as runners and rowers an edge in performance by not having to turn their heads.


"As a passionate cyclist, I am acutely aware of the importance of road safety," said Skinner, who won gold and silver medals at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
This translucent dual lens does its job thanks to its angular construction that creates a rear view effect. The concept is very simple, when you see the images or video you will definitely get a quick idea of how HindSight Edge works.
