More than just drunk goggles

This website sells goggles that promise to effect your perception. We've all heard of drunk goggles, effect your balance, as well as depth, and distance perception. However, there are now goggles that supposedly imitate the effects of marijuana, that effect reaction time and ability to complete complex tasks. Goggles for other drugs, that result in disorientation, altered space perception, vertigo, image distortion, and lack of concentration. There's even goggles for sleep deprivation, which simulate the effects of blurry and unfocused vision in low light. It's all a play on the senses and how we perceive the world around us, and I feel like these goggles could be very effective for college students, and all students for that matter. If people realize how much drugs, alcohol, and sleep deprivation really effects our perception and safety, maybe we could prevent a lot of tragedies.
