You’ll probably end up grabbing a whole range of other weirdly wonderful, yet completely practical things alongside those that you originally intended to purchase. It may be a pair of light-up falsies or even a Nicholas Cage pillowcase (yes, we do love Nic Cage). Whatever you’re on the hunt for, Amazon probably has it.

Let’s check out some of the weirdest things that you can buy on Amazon, including a new invention titled “One Foot Taller” glasses which might just be the end of at least 90% of your problems.

We’ve all been in that situation at a gig where there’s a six-foot giant standing in front of us, blocking our entire view. But now, this new invention might mean you never have to worry about that problem ever again.

Wilcox has created the perfect product – a pair of glasses that allow you to see 30.5cm above the wearer’s normal eye level. That’s a whole foot!

The glasses were created using a sheet of mirrored acrylic with a 45-degree arc to ensure that the smaller mirror can reflect the larger mirror, which is positioned outwards, giving whoever wears them a whole other view. Got that?  A little confusing, I know.

According to Dezeen, his inspiration came from the “small women” that he had seen at gigs. Despite not being able to see the band because of other people’s heads, including his own, they were still dancing. It may be a little difficult to dance with these one-foot glasses on your head, but I’m sure that’s a risk we’re all willing to take.

A lot of people on Twitter are thanking Wilcox for his genius invention. This user (@jetseteatrepeat) describes it as a “game changer”. And we can’t help but agree! Now we’ll be able to see over people’s heads at gigs. Thank you for your service, Dominic.
