BorgCo Labs have a new product on offer !
A pair of very high quality tweezers; the tips are interchangeable. Mounted just behind the tips on a bracket are a pair of lenses and a powerful but compact light source, probably an array of LEDs.
Leading back from the lenses is a parallel-core fibre
optic "cable" that connects to the front of a pair of goggles. Within the goggles, optics allow the wearer to see a binocular view of the tips of the tweezers and just beyond.
The optics are adjustable for focus, dioptre compensation, etc.
On the DeLuxe version there is a zoom facility.
The light source is powered from an (optionally rechargeable) powerpack fixed to the headband of the goggles, or from a mains adaptor (not included).
Comes in a tough blow-moulded carry case.
Ideal for tying fishing flies, SMD electronics, removing splinters, earwax or nostril hairs, amateur dentistry, watchmaking, or playing chess on a photo-etched microscope slide slip cover using grains of sand as playing pieces.

||Ah, so the Borg have hit that stage of life when
Mother Nature hides the end of the Sellotape and
makes your arms too short for comfortable reading.
||Lies, all lies ! There's nothing wrong with OUR
fully operational. Any
more baseless calumny like that and we will
open fire in the general direction of your
||"or playing chess on a photo-etched microscope slide slip cover using grains of sand as playing pieces."
||Yeah, now all you need to do is figure out how to compensate for the trembling.
||If you can replace the LEDs by powerful lasers then you can utilise laser tweezers <link>, by which you can grab ahold of those nose hairs and yank them out and cauterise at the same time.
