The goggle works in conjunction with a computer. On the goggle, there is a camera that sends images of the food to a connected computer. The computer process the image of the food and shows it in larger size. For example, the person in the above image is holding a cookie in his hand. The goggle, he is wearing, magnifies the apparent size of the cookie. It means, in bare eyes, the size of the food looks as it is, but with the goggle, the same sized cookie(food) looks bigger than its original size. Hence, the person thinks that he is eating more than he actually does. This leads to lower consumption of food.

In experiments, volunteers wearing the goggle consumed nearly 10% less when the biscuits they were eating appeared 50% bigger than its original size. They ate 15% more when cookies were manipulated to look two-thirds of their real size.

This is a great technique where computers trick the human mind. In fact the whole trick is all about circumventing people. Researchers said that experiments have shown 80% of subjects became fooled.

The researchers have no plans to commercialize their invention at this moment. But, they may commercialize their invention if public wants. So, Guys? Tell us what do you think about the trick? Do you want this type of device to have less food unknowingly and be slim? Write your comment below in the box.
