We conducted a scientific event at Ajinomoto Stadium on May 10, 2009, in which 129 participants wore two or three kinds of visual-handicap-simulation goggles including eye-occlusion mask and updown reversing goggles. Most participants were elementary school children. After the experience, they answered to the six questions, some of which were the followings: Which was the most difficult goggles to walk or to sit down in a chair? ; Which was the most interesting goggles for you? In results, they reported to be more difficult, fearer, more interesting, and more confused when wearing the up-down reversing goggles than when wearing the eye-occlusion mask. Based on these results, we discuss that the up-down reversed vision will provide more effective simulation experience being visually handicapped than the eye-occlusion will do.
