#1493: SeenGreen

Boxing can be a dangerous sport, but it’s compelling for many people.

Today’s invention tries to lessen the danger caused by widely-hooked punches, which are hard to see as they swing across the visual periphery and are thus responsible for concussions to the unprepared boxer’s brain.

It consists of boxing gloves which are coloured bright green (this colour being the most detectable in the periphery of the retina).

For anyone interested in counting punches who insists that opponents’ gloves should be visibly different, I’d also propose that the gloves carry different green patterns (eg noughts and crosses or dots and stripes?)
