The Ivo Kohler Experience is an event activity that allows people to experience being upside-down using specially designed boxes and goggles.  Putting on the boxes acts like being inside a huge eye with the projected images landing on the screen inside upside-down. Participants can try their skills at walking upside-down emulating the original scientific study by Ivo Kohler.

A table top version using upside-down goggles, based on the original design, can be set up indoors to allow people to test their skills at various drawing tasks.

Ivo Kohler was one of the scientists conducting experiments into human perception in Innsbruck in the 1950's using a series of optical goggles that made the user see upside-down and sideways. Kohler had to wear the goggles for 3 weeks 24 hours a day to study the effects of inverting human sight.
