Hello there
I am a visual artist currently engaged in a project with a perceptive psychology lab to design a series of experimental ‘meta-perceptual helmets’. Each helmet is to modify human binocular vision in such a way that some hypothetically useful property is added. For example: the ‘hammerhead helmet’ increases the distance between the eyes so as to give ‘hyper-stereo vision’ (ie. greater depth perception); the ‘horsehead helmet’ give you wide peripheral vision (hopefully 350°, like horses).
The project is now at a stage where we are ready to start building the helmets and we are looking for an optical designer/engineer who could help us with the full specification of the lenses/prisms/mirrors we will need. Most of the optical set ups are variations of periscopes and should, I think, be fairly straightforward, though there are one or two more problematic setups. Can anyone recommend me a designer we could work with? I would have no objection to working with a student (the budget, alas, is quite tight).
You can see a full document on the project here:
