Enshey Horizontal Prism Lazy Glasses, Prism Spectacles, Periscope Eyeglasses - For Reading and Watching TV in Bed While Lying Flat
About this deal
Call it creativity or some joke with of course, immense knowledge on ‘observation’, Dominic Wilcox has created the 'One Foot Taller' glasses, a pair of periscopeglasses that allow you to see over the heads of people in front of you. The glasses, according to Wilcox add one foot (or 30.5cm) on to the wearer's normal eye-level.
The big upgrade for the cameras this year is the “tetraprism” periscope lens, upping the iPhone’s optical zoom from 2x to 5x. The S23 Ultra technically beats this with 10x zoom, but the way Apple’s engineers achieved it is particularly interesting.Tetraprism, a fancy way of saying four lenses, is a word invented by Apple’s marketing team, but it’s got a nice ring to it!It’s time for an urgent conversation about Apple’s approach to repairability. Despite our enthusiasm for iPhone 14’s easier-to-disassemble design, we’ve been compelled to adjust our repairability score from a promising 7 to a discouraging 4, highlighting Apple’s ongoing constriction of repair freedoms through its restrictive parts pairing system. To effectively repair these models, you have to procure parts within Apple’s sphere and validate the repairs. Without calibration, the parts either don’t work at all, or have compromised functionality and incessant warnings. I also experiment with materials to try to find surprises that can't be found simply by thinking with a pen or a computer’’ he added. The second rumor was that Apple would limit the throughput of the USB-C port for some reason.That rumor turned out to be unfounded. The A17 System-on-Chip (SoC) adds a USB 3 controller, enabling USB 3.2 Gen 2 10 Gb throughput. Because the non-Pro iPhone 15 models inherited the older A16 Bionic, they only support USB 2 and are limited to the same transfer speeds as previous devices with Lightning.

This notable achievement is worth celebrating. For the first time, Apple’s keynote discussed repairability: For example, a lens with a focal length of 200mm and a maximum aperture of f/2.8 has to have a front lens element that’s more than 70mm (or 3 inches) wide. And that's not including any manufacturing considerations. The single largest use of metal in the iPhone is in the outer frame, so that’s where Apple turned to advanced metallurgy to save some grams and gain some marketing points.Some of my ideas develop from observations on human behaviour and I express them through the objects I create’’ The glasses are created using a sheet of mirrored acrylic with a 45-degree bend, to ensure the smaller mirror can reflect the larger mirror, which faces outwards, giving whoever wears them a better view.
