Good To Know: How To Make Bubble Goggles To See Underwater With Just Your Hands

July 6, 2017

This is a video of filmmaker Mitch Bergsma demonstrating how to make a pair of bubble goggles with just your hands that you can use to see underwater. Plus you can use air exhaled from your nose or mouth to refill your bubble goggles in case some leaks out. They work too, I just tried it in the toilet and my phone was definitely in there.

Keep going for the video demonstration, complete with him farting underwater at the end because this is the internet.

Thanks to C, who agrees the best goggles are just opening your eyes underwater, who cares, you think Aquaman is afraid of getting eye worms?

  • Gotta try this!

    I once did this by accident while looking for a drowned swimming mask. Never been able to replicate it though.

  • Meh

    Great lifehack.

    That's a basic scuba skill, clearing your mask. Only instead of keeping the mask sealed at the top, you're using your hands against your forehead. Also, you exhale through your nose to do it, not your mouth. Better display/example of this would've been while using a snorkel.

    I give it a solid "meh".

  • Actually I can't visualize how you'd do this with a mask. Similar principle I'm sure, but it has to be more complicated.

  • Bling Nye

    Less complicated really, since the mask makes an easy seal against your forehead, much better than your hands. https://youtu.be/dEG-OgH9zm...
    (Guy in this video puts his hand on the mask in a weird way, mostly just to give you a really clear view of what's going on. It's a skill training video so he's over exaggerating everything along with showing the "breathe in" gesture)

    It's so flipping obvious. How have I not done this before?!
