Bojana Danilovic sees the world flipped the wrong way around due to an unusual brain disorder.

The 28-year-old who lives in Serbia has to turn books, magazines and even her TV upside-down to look at it due to a disorder called 'spatial orientation phenomenon' which means that her brain is unable to correctly process what she sees. Her eyes are normal, yet her brain flips the image the wrong way around. Unfortunately there is nothing that doctors can do to treat the condition.

"They don't really seem to know exactly how it happens, just that it does and where it happens in my brain," said Danilovic. "They told me they've seen the case histories of some people who write the way I see, but never someone quite like me."

"A woman from Serbia sees the world upside down because of a rare brain condition called spatial orientation phenomenon."

can she drives car? Well I'm not so sure about driving cars.But she might be able to drive UFO's.Unless they ask her to read all the instrument panels and give the aliens instructions.Can you imagine her on a loop da loop?She'll get nausea before she's even got strapped in.And has for her hanging upside down like a bat.Forget it.Because you can't eat food despite seeing things the other way round.Gravity always wins.Though for a time it might actually feel like normality.But because she's sat down like you and I it can't be bothering her that much.I don't even see a TV bolted to the wall which...

It would be better than seeing things inside out!

You would think they could make "glasses" with mirrors to invert the image before it reaches her eyes. I'm sure they wouldn't look pretty, but we do this already with optics. Its just a matter of putting it in a more compact, face fitting form. My thoughts exactly

Sometimes is it cool to be different. Looks like she is dealing with it.

Well, there is something they could do. They could make some glasses with lenses that invert the image. Maybe even contact lenses, but not sure if they could be that thin There are loads of weird eye conditions. Did you know the human eyes can actually see in ultraviolet, the only reason you don't is because they have a UV resistant layer (which stops the sun from burning them). If you removed it, or are born without it you would be able to see in the dark

I heard of a disease in which a woman couldn't see faces, I wonder how they could write and get around

So, is this a problem with her visual cortex? Since images are upside down for everyone until they reach the visual cortex and are processed.
