JWST Sunglasses

Just what it sounds like. Sunglasses with kite-shaped, mirrored lenses to resemble the JWST thermal shield. Alternately, the lenses could resemble the telescope's primary mirror array.

In either form, the sunglasses would fold up to store in an unexpectedly small cylindrical case when you're not wearing them.

       I think this is good, and could get even better if the glasses did even more than just looking cool.

       Thanks. I was trying to think of ways to implement moving parts and folding struts. Maybe use the primary mirror for overcast days (the gold tone would make good "blue-blockers") and flip around to the thermal shield when it's brighter outside.

       Use the "shield(s)" as side glare shields, & the "main mirror" as the lens proper (so, 2 JWSTs side by side). Optional flip-out secondary mirror to provide magnification capabilities (from the partially silvered front of the lens).

       PERFECT!

       + pretty cool. And what about some telescoping capabilities?
