What You're Really Feeling Glasses

Brainwave sensors translate your hidden emotions into an LED screen on front of glasses to portray matching facial expressions.

Many emotions are conveyed through the eyes and eyebrows. Happy, sad, angry, sleepy, even sexy or devious.

So if you're feeling angry, the brainwave sensors built into the glasses would show an LED representation on the front of the glasses like that shown in the links.

Based on those glasses with open eyes painted on the front you can wear to take naps in boring classes without the teacher catching on.

You could use different methods to get the expressions to change. Cellphone program reading the tenor of your voice for instance. Or just a remote switch.

Could also go low tech and just have different panels slide into place from levers on the glasses.

The glasses would have pinholes throughout to enable the person to see through the back of the LED screen. Glasses with art on the front are quite common so an LED or low tech version would be easy to achieve.

Opaque glasses with little holes you can see through. https://www.logolen...EAQYASABEgJ7fPD_BwE

       Well, [+] because it's the weekend and the gin and tonics are working as expected.   

       I suspect that you may be misoverestimating the ability of "brainwave sensors" built into glasses to detect emotions. Also, there are many times when I will want to convey the impression of an emotion other than what I am feeling. For example, I might want to express "absolutely riveted" when listening to details of the latest argument between my wife and her sister, rather than "I really don't give a shit, yet again". So, on balance, I'd go for your remote switch option.   

       Also, LED displays would be dazzling and difficult to see through - maybe opt for an LCD which can be made clear in the non-image parts of the the, ah, image.

       Will there be a version with a laser pointer at the side ?

       //I suspect that you may be misoverestimating the ability of "brainwave sensors" built into glasses to detect emotions.//   

       Started out with the big tech approach, moved towards the little pictures you could scroll across the lens. Low tech is probably better. Plus, as you said, you might want to convey a different emotion than you're feeling, hence the dial-a- mood feature.   

       Yea, low tech. Screw that sciency stuff.   

       You know, if you had dials on either side you could mix and match. Different eyes for loads of hilarious hi-jinks. Winking eye on the left, angry on the right, sleepy on the right, angry on the left. Hours of fun, impress the chicks, guaranteed to break the ice at parties, impress the neighbors, wear them when you get pulled over to get out of an expensive drunk driving arrest. A thousand and one uses.   

       And mostly opaque glasses aren't a problem. See link.

       Pay me enough I'll design one with TEC-9s on BOTH sides.

       [doc], you get bonus points if you can design an animated bikini top that achieves the same result.
