Have you ever wondered about what you can’t see with your eyes?

Now You See Me is a giant pair of binoculars offering an alternative perspective on the world in front of you.

These are no ordinary binoculars – when you peer through the giant lenses, the world looks beautifully distorted. Rainbows spiral, faces are replicated and molecular textures pulse.

Persuade your friends to dance and play in front of the lenses to see their bodies morph and mutate in unexpected ways. The more movement that happens in front of the lenses, the wilder the visuals.
