Have you ever wondered how man’s best friend views the world? Artist Hung-Chih Peng did, and created this S&M-ish looking dog helmet so the wearer can experience a canine point of view called the One Eye Ball project:
He mounted LCD displays approximately the size of eyeglasses in a helmet and connected them through a tube with a camera attached to the end of this trunk. The trunk reached to just below the knee of the viewer, just the height, where a dog’s eyes would normally be. Inside the helmet, the display shows what the camera records through the “dog eye”. You can control the camera by hand or by moving the body and thus view the world from various perspectives.
