The most effective presentations have at least three components — a video or other form of media, a personal testimonial, and a hands-on experience. The evidence-based Fatal Vision® Goggles offer that hands-on experience, allowing participants to experience the effects of alcohol, marijuana, a concussion, or drowsy or distracted driving firsthand.
Fatal Vision® Drunk Goggles
The Fatal Vision Alcohol Impairment Simulation Goggles offer sober people an opportunity to experience what it’s like to navigate basic tasks after drinking. They give participants a safe way to learn the important lesson that alcohol greatly impairs a person’s balance, vision, reaction time and judgment.
The drunk simulation goggles are available in five levels that model the impairment associated with a particular blood alcohol concentration (BAC) — from less than .06 to .25+ BAC. Fatal Vision is available with either a clear lens to simulate daytime or shaded lens to simulate nighttime conditions. Purchase two or more different goggles to show how increased BAC results in increased impairment.
Fatal Vision® Marijuana Simulation Goggles
Fatal Vision Marijuana Goggles model the effects of recreational marijuana so you can experience the impact of what it’s like to be under the influence. Marijuana affects the brain differently than alcohol, and our marijuana goggles reflect that difference.
Rather than distorting the vision so the participant stumbles and loses coordination, the goggles simulate marijuana’s true effects — they diminish the participant’s capacity to make quick, accurate decisions, and that causes her to miss important external cues that could lead to an accident. The goggles accomplish this by impairing her ability to perceive the color red. This lack of perception means the participant does not have all the necessary information to complete specially designed activities. When you are under the influence of marijuana, you do not, in fact, lose your ability to perceive the color red.
Fatal Vision® Concussion Simulation Goggles
Fatal Vision Concussion Goggles allow participants to experience the effects of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or body. When they understand the impact a concussion can have, they will be more likely to report it, take preventive measures and follow a doctor's prescribed recovery protocol.
While wearing the goggles, they experience the simulated TBI symptoms of dizziness, visual disconnect, disorientation, confusion and lack of confidence in making quick decisions.
Fatal Vision® Drowsy and Distracted Goggles
Have you ever glanced down at your phone while driving, only to look back up and jerk the wheel because you were drifting off to the side of the road? Or, have you ever gotten behind the wheel of a car after a particularly rough night and found it was hard to concentrate on the task at hand? Drowsy and distracted driving claims thousands of lives every year, largely because people do not believe they are driving impaired. The Fatal Vision® Drowsy and Distracted Goggles allow wearers to experience simulated impairment from drowsiness or distraction while driving.
Frequently Asked Questions
Fatal Vision® Alcohol Impairment Goggles
What is the difference between the clear and shaded lens?
Fatal Vision Goggles are available with either a clear or shaded lens to simulate daytime or nighttime impairment.
Is it a good idea to use impairment goggles with a golf cart to simulate impaired driving?
Innocorp, ltd. does not recommend the use of impairment goggles with any motorized vehicle. This activity is potentially dangerous and could result in injury.
"It's not really like this when you're impaired," right?
When a person is drinking alcohol, both his mind and body become impaired. This impairment affects his cognitive (or mental) state and ability to make rational choices. The Fatal Vision Goggles impair an individual's physical abilities, including balance and equilibrium, reaction time, judgment and targeting. Because Fatal Vision Goggles do not impair a person’s cognitive state, it is sometimes difficult for those wearing the goggles to comprehend that they truly behave in this way as they perform a series of simple sobriety tests. The lesson is understood by simply reminding the participant that he is experiencing impairment with a sober mind.
How do the White Label Goggles support my prevention message when they simulate such a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) impairment level?
The White Label Goggles simulate an estimated BAC of .05 or less, which is one of our most popular impairment levels. With nationwide campaigns bringing attention to the dangers of “buzzed” driving, the White Label Goggles deliver a clear lesson about how impairment begins with the first drink. These goggles also provide a sobering lesson when used to address the issues of metabolization, showing that individuals may still be impaired the morning after consuming alcohol and not even realize it.
What impairment level does the Blue Label Goggle simulate?
The Blue Label Goggles cause double vision and extreme blurriness. Due to the extreme visual impairment they create, customers use the Blue Label Goggles as the preferred method for simulating impairment from substances other than alcohol.
Are Fatal Vision Goggles ever referred to by another name?
Yes, Fatal Vision Goggles are sometimes referred to by people as Beer Goggles, Drunk Goggles or Drunk Glasses.
Fatal Vision® Marijuana Simulation Goggles
Can the Fatal Vision Marijuana Goggles simulate other kinds of drug impairment?
These goggles are designed to model the cognitive impairments resulting from recreational marijuana use. However, synthetic cannabis, often referred to as K2 Spice, has similar impairments to recreational marijuana use.
How are the Fatal Vision Marijuana Goggles different from the Fatal Vision Alcohol Impairment Goggles?
The impairment from alcohol involves gross motor incoordination, so the physical effects are more obvious. The Fatal Vision Alcohol Impairment Simulation goggles demonstrate the impairment of loss of balance, poor vision, slowed reaction time, and poor judgment associated with alcohol consumption.
Impairment resulting from recreational marijuana use is more subtle and involves a cognitive impairment that distorts concentration, disrupts memory and information processing, and causes a slight loss of coordination. The Fatal Vision Marijuana Goggles demonstrates these cognitive impairments and the potentially severe consequences that can result.
Why are the Fatal Vision Marijuana Goggles green? Does this imply that recreational marijuana use causes someone to see green?
No, marijuana does not cause you to see green, nor does it make you blind to the color red. The green lens is one component of the Marijuana Goggles that helps demonstrate the distorted processing of visual information.
How are the Fatal Vision Marijuana Simulation Experience Goggles different from the Blue Label Fatal Vision Goggles?
The Fatal Vision® Marijuana Goggles and activities are designed specifically to model the perceptual and cognitive impairments of recreational marijuana. The Blue Label Goggles cause double vision and extreme blurriness, which some of our customers have used to simulate physical impairment from substances other than alcohol. The Blue Label Goggles do not simulate the effects of a specific drug or have a designated blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level.
Can I purchase just a Fatal Vision Marijuana Simulation Goggles and use it like the Fatal Vision Alcohol Impairment Goggles?
T The Fatal Vision® Marijuana Simulation Goggles are not available for purchase individually; however, additional Marijuana Goggles may be added to the purchase of either the Marijuana Simulation Experience Program or Event Kits.
The lens technology that we use to simulate impairment from alcohol allows the participant to feel loss of balance, impaired targeting skills and vision, slowed reaction time, and poor judgment.
The lens technology that we use to model impairment from recreational marijuana is very different. The Marijuana Goggles provide a filtering effect that allows the participant to experience loss of concentration, loss of short-term memory, and altered visual information processing, with a minimal loss of balance and coordination. To model these cognitive impairments, we designed specific activities and accessories for the Fatal Vision® Marijuana Goggles to demonstrate the potentially severe consequences that can result from the acute effects of recreational marijuana use, especially while driving.
What is the difference between the Program Kit and Event Kit?
The Event Kit and Program Kit each include the materials necessary to perform five activities that are designed to model five different cognitive impairments resulting from recreational marijuana. The activities in both kits include:
- Ball Toss Activity- Perceptions and Response
- The Maze Activity- Executive Function
- Object Identification- Reaction Time
- Traffic Signals-Visual Perception and Response
- Road Recall-Short Term Memory
The Event Kit includes a 6th activity that uses the DIES Distracted Driving Mat for delivery of an additional Road Recall experience that demonstrates the effects of short-term memory loss while driving. The Event Kit also includes an additional 200 mazes.
What age group should I use the Fatal Vision Marijuana Simulation Experience Kits with?
The Fatal Vision Marijuana Simulation Kits each include a variety of activities and experiences that provide a clear drug prevention lesson. Several activities focus on drugged driving and are targeted for both new and experienced drivers ages 16 and older.
Each kit also includes activities that can be used to educate about non-driving dangers that can result from recreational marijuana use. Because rates of marijuana use amongst 8th-, 10th-, and 12th-graders are higher than rates for any other illicit drug (as cited by whitehousedrugpolicy.gov), the Fatal Vision® Marijuana Simulation Experience Kits can be an effective tool with youth 12 years of age or older, provided the instructor has a relevant call to action for this age group.
Fatal Vision® Concussion Goggles
Do the Concussion Goggles have the same visual effects as the Fatal Vision Goggles?
No. The Concussion Goggles provide a visual experience that produces double or disconnected vision, which is a common symptom of concussions. When the goggles are used with the included kit activities, participants experience a very realistic simulation of traumatic brain injury (TBI) symptoms, and quickly understand the impact of this type of brain injury.
Can I just use my Fatal Vision Goggles to simulate a concussion?
The Fatal Vision Goggles simulate impairment, and not the visual concussion symptoms associated with TBI. We designed the Concussion Goggles and program activities to compliment one another and deliver a realistic concussion simulation and learning experience.
How does this kit help me simulate a concussion?
The included Quick Start Guide, Power Point Presentation, and activities provide an effective lesson that is simple to deliver and not soon forgotten.
Activities such as the “Timed Catch” or the Concussed Card Game let participants experience the following TBI symptoms:
- Feeling of dizziness
- Visual disconnect
- Disorientation and loss of spatial awareness
- Hesitation, apprehension, confusion and lack of confidence while doing the activity
How would the Concussion Goggles Kit support my safety lesson?
TThe Concussion Goggles Kit is the solution for any organization that is looking to provide an educational component about TBI and concussions. This tool can be easily implemented into an existing program, and it is substantial enough in content and material to provide an “out-of-the-box” answer to address this safety concern.
The Concussion Goggles Kit is specifically designed to deliver a hands-on and experiential lesson. This approach can help increase the likelihood that your participants will remember and put the lesson learned into practice.
This kit can be used in the following programs and more:
- Bike/helmet safety
- Concussion management
- Seatbelt safety
- Sports federations and governing bodies
- Coaches clinics
- Parent and player meetings
- Fall prevention and senior care
- Applicable for use with all ages and groups, from the 5-year-old bike rider, to the amateur/professional athlete, to senior citizens.
