A resident of Taichung has developed what he describes as a "third eye" -- a mirror attached to spectacles that enables the wearer to see behind him or her without turning the head. A retired civil servant surnamed Lin said he was inspired by the rear-view mirror of automobiles in developing the device, which is attached to spectacle frames. Lin spent nearly two years developing what he claims is a unique product. He said the cost of his device is low, but claimed it could create high value if made into a commercial product. He added that the device has to be fastened to the wearer's glasses, which he said could compromise the aesthetic appeal for the wearer.
