OK. It might not be the best idea ever, I just had to use the title on something!

What is it? Glasses to be worn while working at computer (usb connecting) with lcd lenses that generate a spot in your vision (synchronised in both lenses).

The spot moves in a slow random (pattern?) across the centre of the lenses forcing you to move your head and eyes to see around it - helping to prevent eye fatigue and neck stiffness.

Would like to see an entire office wearing them, with a little twanging sitar music playing in the background.

       Guaranteed to annoy the piss out of you in minutes and raise your blood pressure. Next time that guy with the bulging vein has an involuntary eye spasm, wait till he takes his glasses off to rub his eyes then replace them with TBIE glasses, and watch him go. Be careful though, he may snap and take out the entire office with a hole punch.   

       Simply release a mosquito in front of your face for the same effect, or hang a raison from the peak of a baseball cap.

       Glad you didn't use that title on a good idea. Even if the idea had been excellent it would still have been boned into oblivion with a title like that. You might as well have titled it "Don't Bone This".

       Marklar, I presume that is a raison d'etre you will be hanging in front of your eyes?

       Title = false advertisment

       I like the idea. The title is rubbish though.   

       The hanging raisin thing is brilliant, [marklar].

       The Best Eye-dea Ever. Not.

       If the glasses are set far enough back, it should be perfectly simple to look around the dot by moving the eyes and head in unison. Old librarians look around their glasses in just this way all the time.   

       Speaking of which... I think I'll do some shameless self-promotion. [link]

       Ever seen the movie 'The Jerk?'

       the best ever title somehow puts off us *oldies*

       Gotta admit... I wouldn't of even bothered to read this thing if it didn't have that title (and wasn't boned to oblivion)
