All of the Compound crew have been having fun with these things we found recently called "Trip Glasses"... Dave just got some and mine are on the way. They don't make you feel like your tripping, they basically work like a Dream Machine using blinking LEDs and sound frequencies that match the brain waves of deep meditation. You won't see unicorns and rainbows, but you actually will see some really "trippy" shapes and fractal looking things and experience some weird sound effects. Plus, they really make your brain meditate, they look totally bad ass and the audio comes out of an eight inch headphone jack (I will be experimenting with that for sure)!!!! They work great sober, even better stoned... but I tried them actually tripping and I wouldn't recommend it.
You can buy a pair for only $40, CLICK HERE!
Here is a video of some peoples reaction to Trip Glasses, and then the creator Mitch Altman explaining how they work ("Trip Glasses" were originally called a "Brain Machine"):
And as a bonus, the same website that sells the Trip Glasses (www.makershed.com) also sells something called a "555 NoiseMusick Kit"... CHECK IT OUT!
