The reversing goggles are great fun! However they require a *lot*of assembly: they are really more of a diy goggles kit so people should be prepared to have to spend a bit of time preparing them. It would be good if they were supplied with the epoxy needed to hold the prisms in place, and the enamel paint to cover the open faces. But once they are together they are fun to play with - we will be using tem with psychology and architecture students to teach them first-hand about vision and space.
They do require some assembly. I will have another look at the description to see if we need to make that clearer.
There are issues around selling glue, which I suspect is why the kits do not come with glue already supplied.
Tricky to assemble and glue so that everything lines up and in the end I had to adjust the alignment of one finished prism with tabs of insulation tape to get the vertical alignment correct in the finished product. The view image is also small, but they are efffective and do exactly what they are supposed to do. Just don't expect panoramic vision. I think it would also be worth an extra tenner if they came ready assembled.
Great glasses to have fun ;-).
They didn't send anything.
I am very sorry but the Reversing Goggles are currently out of stock. We e-mailed you on March 31st 2021 to let you know.
More stock is on the way, and as soon as it arrives, we will ship your order.
Have not received.
Sorry. We were out of stock of this item, and as it missed the date for the science fair, we refunded your payment.
Construction was difficult because glue was not included.
I understand. However there are regulations around the sale of glue, and proof of age is sometimes required. So the German company who supply this kit have taken the decision not to include glue with the kit.
99% you would need a glue to fix lens, but there is no glue in the package, so you buy it separately. Manul is the worst I ever seen - you need an academic degree to understand it. Also red gum is not good quality - mine was deformed :(.
Excellent and well made. I am an optical engineer and am very picky. This is well designed and delightful to use.
The only reason I gave it 3 and not 5 is because the assembly required (which I obviously f***ed up).
To have my clumsy ass glue (not included, and you have to guess what type you need) the prisms to the holes in the cardboard turned out badly for me, now one lens is foggy. But that is completely my fault... still a pre-assembled (at leased pre-glued) would make me give it a 5+ stars.
A bit finicky, but alright.
