Nike HindSight - Panoramic Sunglasses

User Rating: / 0

The urban jungle isn’t exactly the safest place for bicyclists. You need the right tools to keep you one step ahead of irresponsible motorists. The Nike Hindsight gives you superhuman like powers with extended peripheral vision so all those sneaky cars, beware.

They work similar to bifocals except for your peripheral vision. By using fresnel lenses on both sides of the glasses, riders can detect motion in a field of view beyond the normal human limit of 180º.

The Nike Hindsight augments a rider's field of view, effectively expanding his awareness of approaching vehicles. Using simple fresnel lenses integrated into the sides of a standard 9-base lenses, an extra 25 degree of view are distorted into either side of the rider's far peripheral vision. As the eye detects only motion in that area, the resulting visual distortion is rendered negligible and little clarity is lost in the process.
