Invention has been an outcome of necessity, but I fail to understand the necessity of this creation. Two inventors, James Sooy and Oliver Gibson, have created the first Pierced Glasses. The most minimalist eyewear since the Pince-nez glasses that clip onto your nose was invented in the 1840’s. By simply piercing the top of your nose, you can attach a nice hinge in your head for mounting glasses.
Here is the step-by-step:
– Get pierced – an internally-threaded barbell that goes through the skin above the bridge of your nose
– Use a tabletop mill to cut the L-shaped metal pieces that screw onto the barbell
– Attach rare earth magnets to the glasses; these hold the glasses on.
– Don’t get rid of the bridge pieces; they let the lenses sit on your nose and take the actual weight of the lenses. Ouch! Now that hurts. Why would anyone pierce their nose just to wear glasses as long as the person is pathetically lethargic or without hands? For those who think that Pierced Glasses are dangerous or crazy, listen to what the creators say about other surgical alternatives to glasses: “Paying … to have someone cut your eyes and shoot a laser in them (just so you don’t have to wear glasses) seems extreme to me…” Well all I can say is that everyone has a right to voice their own opinion. As far as I am concerned, is anyone selling contact lenses?
