Eye Band Halloween Thing

A row of 7 eyes that blink.
  [vote for,

Worn like a pair of glasses, this has 5 eyballs on it that match yours. One between your eyes riding on the top of the nose and two on either side forming an line of eyeballs from one side of your head to the other.

And they blink because sensors can tell when you blink and that triggers motors that make the fake eyes blink. The eyes could move too by either tracking your real eyes or it could be configured to look left and right by the wearer slightly tilting their head up or down. With a little practice you could look around the room with all 7 eyes.

For bald people it could extent around the entire head.

Addendum: A much simpler version could simply be a band of eyes arrayed using lenticular printing such that they open and close as the angle changes with respect to the viewer. The wearer could simple look out through small holes.

This is actually much more practical and would get the same result. The "glasses" would be shaped like the thing that Geordi La Forge wears. For those who aren't 8th, that's the guy from Star Trek. (link)

Doesn't have to be a band, could just be a row of multiple glasses where you usually just have two.

old note book pics - one has extra eyebrows to keep the hippo happy https://sodabred.tu...that-might-serve-to

This only with eyes all across it. https://en.wikipedi...iki/Geordi_La_Forge
That blink as your head turns. [doctorremulac3, Oct 15 2020]

Just buy a few of these and cut them together. https://www.ebay.co...EAQYASABEgKOJvD_BwE

       Doc - I'll post a pic of something I drew up several years ago for a pair of spider glasses with multiple eyes. It's only a note book scribble and slightly different to what's described here but otherwise can serve to illustrate your idea. If you don't like it, or think it's not a good fit, you can delete the link and I won't take any offence. I included another idea for a pair of glasses with bushy eyebrows to keep the hippo in good humour. (Hippos are the most dangerous animal in the whole of Africa)

       Xen, that's great. I love any art posted here, like I say, I autobun anything with art.   

       It's OK to have similar ideas, shows we think alike more than we might admit.

       Doesn't everyone here already have one of these that they wear all the time?

       Not yet, but I'm working on it.   

       Just occurred to me, there's a very simple version of this that might be cool as well. See addendum.

       Fantastic idea.

       For the version of this that extends around your whole head I imagine it working such that as you turn your head, the eyes stay stationary

       The eyes have it.
