The Third Eye is a device conceived by Japanese designer Takehito Etani. The contraption, which goes on the head, offers the user a very different and unusual perception from outside his/her body. The devise consists of a one-eyed goggle with a 2-inch LCD monitor and a surveillance camera.

"The visual experience of 'The Third Eye' is similar to that of a 3D video game in which the user controls and follows a given character from behind," notes "The device turns the user into the character that he/she is controlling and real space is transformed into virtual space."

The video shows a person with the device mounted on their head walking through Times Square in New York City. The guy looks a bit like a Borg from Star Trek but the experiment looks very interesting. Stats for 3-D Virtual Reality Trending: Older & Mild
