Experiment in seeing the world upside down


In 1950, University of Innsbruck professor Theodor Erismann used a pair of custom goggles to turn the eyesight of his student, Ivo Kohler, upside down.

After ten very difficult days, Kohler began to see the world as normal. Above is video from the experiment.
