Helmet eyes of surprise!

Makes the other motorist look twice
  [vote for,

Imagine if you will...You are driving down a dark road on a blustery autumn night, when you happen upon a distant light. It’s coming towards you. As the light approaches you realize that it is in-fact an oncoming motorcyclist. As it gets closer you notice a faint red glow beneath the visor. Taken aback; thoughts of both dread and wonder pass through your mind. Within seconds, it has gone. All is quiet. Was that really one of Hells Angels?

I'm proposing red glowing L.E.D. rimmed glasses for motorcyclists to wear after dark; just to spook the odd motorist.

       Didn't Elton John have some of these?

       No, they had yellow and green L.E.D.'s with diamonds and emeralds encrusted. These are quite different...classy if you will. I imagined just a few clustered diodes, to give the appearance of red glowing eyes. Covering the whole rims would be, perhaps, too much!

       Every Halloween I am tempted to kind of half bake this with red LEDs behind just one lense of a pair of shades. "Uzi. 9mm"

       I know you can obtain devil or skeleton appearance overlays for your helmet now ... but they look terrible .. with [links]

       Helmet eyes. Is that like hat hair?

       I've had helmet 'hawk before ... ya' know where your mohawk gets all mangled while you're riding arround all day ... and that sweaty smell isn't cool at all

       The only problem I could see with this is if you were wearing a shield. I'm pretty sure the glare coming back from your glasses inside the shield would be a problem. Course if you fix that sign me up for a pair, maybe even give me a price on a dealership! (+)

       I like the fact they're not just 'helmet eyes' but they *surprise!* as well +
