Gorilla-Viewing Glasses Prevent Eye-Contact



No. I am NOT looking a you…

The Rotterdam Zoo is giving away cardboard glasses that make it appear that you’re looking off to one side; these are gorilla-viewing glasses, meant to avoid incidents in which gorillas attack visitors for making eye contact with them.

The specs are sponsored by a local health-insurance company.
