Xray sunglasses are novelty glasses that appear to be able to see through objects. They are a popular novelty item in America, and have been around for many years.
These glasses are made of a plastic frame with lenses that are punched out of heavy cardboard. Small holes are made in the center of each lens and feathers are used for covering them. Feathers are used to polarize light from the front and rear of the lens, creating the illusion of seeing through objects.
The purchase of various raw materials, followed by the fabrication of the glasses, is the beginning of the production process for x-ray glasses. The lenses are made from a high-molecular weight polymer that can be easily colored and is heat stable. It should also be flexible and simple to work with in the manufacturing process.
An x-ray glasses frame, in addition to the lens is also manufactured. The frame is typically made out of thick, black plastic. It looks similar to thick frames from the 1950s.
Once the frame is fabricated, it goes to a printing press to get inks and other designs printed. The design is usually a circular pattern that will confuse eyes and create the illusion of looking through objects.
The glasses are then packaged and sent to the retailers. A small instruction card may be included with the packaging that explains how to use your glasses and explains what optical illusions are.
Unlike 3D glasses, which use technology to give the wearer a realistic view of a real object, x-ray glasses do not use technology at all. Wilhelm Roentgen (German physicist) discovered x-rays in 1895. He noticed that certain invisible beams could penetrate aluminum and wood.
It wasn’t until much later that the idea of using these rays for practical purposes was realized. Initially, people believed that x rays could be used to see through walls and clothes and were reinforced by comic book heroes such as Superman who used their powers to see through solid objects.
However, as more scientists understood x rays, the myths surrounding them were debunked. A scanner was eventually discovered to be the best way to see through solid objects.
Today, the public doesn’t believe that xrays can see through objects. X-ray glasses are still very popular among novelty buyers and remain an iconic part American pop culture.
These glasses are a fun novelty product that will entertain the whole family. These glasses could become a useful tool for doctors to reduce the time spent in hospitals and clinics caring for injured patients. The Mphahleles hope that the technology behind these glasses will be able to save lives and make the hospital experience faster and easier for those who are injured.
