Origin[edit | edit source]

Edwin Herbert Land (May 7, 1909 – March 1, 1991) was an American scientist and inventor, best known as the co-founder of the Polaroid Corporation. Among other things, he invented inexpensive filters for polarizing light, a practical system of in-camera instant photography, and his retinex theory of color vision. His Polaroid instant camera, which went on sale in late 1948, made it possible for a picture to be taken and developed in 60 seconds or less.

Effect[edit | edit source]

This collection of Land's first prototypes can allow the user to see clearly in highly illuminated areas. The artifact does not, however, prevent damage from staring at light sources directly, and so were tossed out.

Active Warehouse agents are given a pair of these in addition to their standard purple-neutralizing glasses.
