It is not a secret that the main goal of strobe glasses is to enhance short-term visual memory.

But do you know the principle of how these glasses work?

In Nike sparq glasses special curved lenses are used. They work coursing stroboscopic effect, which is based on the perception of the brain of the so-called “residual image”. Almost every one of us encountered this, looking at the sun for a long time or on a bright light bulb. In the human brain a so-called “visual imprint” is created, caused by the short-term exposure to light with a high level of intensity. Speaking about strobe glasses we should say that such blocking of vision for a certain period is laid in the core of eyestrobe glasses. Such blockage of vision forces the brain to foresee some future moments and leads to a supersensitive perception.

How do we see objects? Eyes perceive the image, transmit the signal to the brain, the brain processes it and then we get a visual effect. Strobe glasses help to shorten this path and give the opportunity to predict the trajectory of object movement during the dark phase. Thus, the brain will give a signal to react to the future position of the object.  In other words, training in strobe glasses expands the possibilities of human brains and improve visual-motor coordination.
