I can see through your eyes

Glasses to allow you to read information reflected on the cornea
  [vote for,

Quite often, for example in the bank, or at a job interview, it would be useful to be able to read the information that the other person has about you. Sometimes you are able to do this if there happens to be a reflective surface near the computer screen, etc. While not sure exactly of how the optics would work, it would be great to have a pair of glasses that would allow me to magnify the reflection in the other person's eyes or on their glasses, to a size that would allow me to read it. Of course it would be in reverse, but thats fairly easy to compensate for.

Facial recognition is in (the reflection of) the eye of the beholder http://www.gizmag.c...9f5c97d458-90050970
The worst has happened. You receive an emailed kidnap demand with a picture of your loved one in dire straits. You contact the authorities, and in a flash (relatively speaking), they have identified the kidnapper and possibly some accomplices, and are well on their way toward recovering the victim. How did this happen? By identifying the faces of the kidnappers caught in the reflection of your loved one's eyes. [senatorjam, Jan 17 2014]


       Wouldn't work on my eyes, I'm happy to say.

       Might work on his head, though...

       Not a Kat's eyes. We see quite differently. [acat] ? [thecat] ? doesn't see from either point of View apparently.

       [TheKat] Try making some sense when you are being dishonest and snotty. Then at least you will be getting one thing right.

       Anyone tempted to believe this read the pertinent item and perhaps Tiger Lily and thecat (July 2003).

       [The Kat] is the one understood.
