Laowa is no stranger to producing weird and wonderful lenses, such as its 24mm f/14 2X Macro Probe lens, for instance. But now it's gone one better. Take that very probe lens, angle the front lens element through 90 degrees so it faces out of the side of the lens barrel, rather than the front end, and hey presto: you've got the 24mm T14 2x PeriProbe 'periscope' lens.
