Eyepressure Video

Intrasensory perception!

Allergy season, and the eye rubbing begins. The only fun thing about it is the amazing and unpredictable flashes of color and light that rubbing the eye can produce. Who has not continued rubbing their eyes long after the itch has gone, just to revel in the amazing display? A decade of dedicated and dangerous research by BUNGCO ophthomagists has resulted in an understanding of exactly how and why it works. BUNGCO is proud to parlay their hard work into cold cash, with the new Eyepressure Video Device!

Strap on these goggles and special (padded!) cups nestle over your closed eyelids. Then the fun begins. Carefully applied pressure and motion generates amazing vision, of things never before seen or seeable with the naked eye. The EPV set comes with 5 videos, two of which are translated ordinary videos and three are original creations by BUNGCO contracted EPV artists.

Our scientists continue to work on more serious applications for the EPV. Amusements aside, the optic apparatus may have more peceptual possibilities than are commonly used. By closing the lid and shutting of the welter of lightborne images, it may be possible to capitalize on the other abilities of the eye. Who knows what realms of perception might open to the bold wearer of the EPV?

       It would be interesting if the same patterns of applied pressure produced the same images, but I suspect that wouldn't happen even in the same person.

       Elf cologne. I think there is musk ox musk in it.

       I can do it without rubbing and with the power of my imagination I can stimulate the colours to take on various shapes.

       [DrCurry], Maybe he's from the (sssh!!) "Other hemisphere" where it is mid summer...

       I share [zeno]'s hobby. sometimes I can see a *photograph* of an image (mainly in black & white) but I have a tough time holding on to it.
