Tens Tinted Sunglasses Are Designed to Give You Instagram Vision

In a world in which almost all of our mobile photos are passed through a filter of some sort before being shared, we’ve become accustomed to the aesthetic that such filters produce. However, since these alterations are all done in post, they don't really reflect how our eyes capture the world around us... until now.

Two-Minute Mind-Bending Demonstration of Perspective Anamorphosis

Anamorphosis is a technique you've probably seen used many times, even if you never knew what it was called. It's the projection technique that sidewalk artists use to make it seem like their drawings are three-dimensional when viewed from a specific angle.

And if you want a perfect example of this technique in action, look no further than the video above: a commercial for Ray-Ban sunglasses... although you'd never have been able to tell if we hadn't told you.

Ambermatic App Applies a Filter to Your Photos Using a Real Pair of Shades

Last year we shared a clever "real world Instagram filter" concept called InstaCRT, which took submitted photos and rephotographed them on a real CRT monitor to capture a CRT look. Seeing the success of that project, Ray-Ban has decided to use the same idea in a clever bit of marketing to promote its Ambermatic sunglasses.

To show people what the world looks like through sunglasses fitted with Ambermatic lenses, the company launched an iOS camera app called Ray-Ban Ambermatic. It can apply a yellow tint to your photos using a real pair of Ambermatic glasses.

Photo Frame in the Shape of Sunglasses
