Worn like a pair of glasses, this has 5 eyballs on it that
yours. One between your eyes riding on the top of the
and two on either side forming an line of eyeballs from
side of your head to the other.
And they blink because sensors can tell when you blink
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
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
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.

This only with eyes all across it.
That blink as your head turns. [doctorremulac3, Oct 15 2020]
Just buy a few of these and cut them together.

||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.
||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
