Artist Aram Bartholl has an excellent pair of first person shooter glasses you can make for that always on DOOM feeling… – “First Person Shooter is the definition for a computer game genre which is played in the first person view while shooting is the main action of the game. A typical element of the game is the virtual arm of the player. Pointing with a weapon to the center of the screen this arm stays in the foreground all the time. The Object First Person Shooter is a card and a do it yourself set. The result of cutting and glueing all parts of FPS is a pair of glasses with the arm and weapon visible from out- and inside.” [via] – Link.

  1. Eh, nice concept but kind of a let-down. I printed the specs of the site just to see what they would be like, expecting them to be more art and less function. Unfortunately, I was right (because this would have been kind of cool). When you wear them, the little hand holding a gun is too blurry to register in your field of vision. It’s just a fuzzy blob in your line of sight. Maybe you’ll have better skill with this than I did.
