An invention idea by Alex Dickens, age 11, made real by Alan Parker.
They say ‘never look back’ but this invention may prove them wrong.
“If you put the glasses on you can see behind you” Alex Dickens
Alex met with the theatre prop maker Alan Parker to discuss his idea.
“Out of the designs the reverse glasses really appealed to my sense of humour. On speaking to Alex about his initial idea was ‘mam’s eyes’ as mums have eyes in the back of their heads to see what you are doing behind their back. It was unusual building someone else’s idea as I work in theatre making scenery and props to my own designs, but enjoyed Alex’s enthusiasm for his idea- ‘Glassworks’ glasses that look backwards.” Alan Parker
