Chewing Spectacles are a pair of glasses that have their
eyepieces fashioned into two open mouths. These are
complete with detailed inflated lips to hold the lenses in
place and a set of upper and lower front teeth.
When someone is saying something, and you want to stop
the conversation in
its tracks, you switch your glasses
unto "chewing mouth" mode.
Doing this activates the miniature motors that power the
lips and teeth, which can assume a large range of
based on careful and through analysis of mouth gestures,
generally connected to the process of eating. Each
lens is capable of either independent or coordinated
action. The ability to see through the glasses is only
partially obscured by this action.
Chewing Spectacles come in male or female mode. Male
mode can feature upper lip moustache hair of choice.
male lips can be botox enhanced, or made as replicas of
famous celebrities. The teeth can also be fully
on demand, ranging from "Kardashion Ultra Bleach" to
"Hillbilly Rotted Stumps".
Chewing Spectacles come complete with a
hand held device to activate and control their use.
