each pod on the london eye should be fitted with concave lenses on each side to give tourists a zoomed view of london.

For a limited time only and perhaps sponsored by Johnsons&Johnsons giant contact lens brand; Acuvue

(inspired by Ian Tindale's; The London other eye - linked)

       When the sun came in at a particular angle, and passed through the lens, whom ever inside the pod who was in the path of the focused ray would sizzle away and disappear in a puff of smoke... Eye-Fry with my little Eye - I'm sorry but it had to be said.

       <technicality> if you had a con*cave*: >> )( << lens then everything would be fisheye view and passengers would be vomiting excessively from motion sickness. if you wanted a zoom view, you would need a con*vex*: >> () << lens. however, if you were just using temporary additions to windows, then you might as well only use a bulge on the outside of the window: >> (| << it would work just as well. </technicality>   

       other than that, good idea. bun for you. (+)
