This fashion accessory and social talking point consists of two main components wired together.
1. VR headset type thing that covers and conceals the user's eyes and presents a tiny screen to each eye. The goggles also incorporate eye-tracking detectors so that it knows what direction each eye independently
is looking in.
2. A strap around the user's chest which incorporates two realistic motorised swivelling eyeballs mounted directly in front of the user's nipples. Each contains a camera. Each camera feeds the headset goggles.
The user thus views the world from a widely spaced chest height viewpoint. People wishing to converse with the user need to look down to see into their eyes.
Perhaps best if everyone in a given social situation is wearing the device.

||I'm not sure I want a view of everyone's nostrils.
||// it knows what direction each eye independently is looking in.//
||Wouldn't you have to surgically separate a muscle to allow your eyes to track independently?
||My eyes don't look in parallel all the time, they converge if I am looking at something very close.
||I'm trying to picture if this would help or hinder social
interactions with a neighbor of ours. He's not actually a dwarf,
but his eye level is roughly the same as my wife's nipple-level.
His name is Richard but she calls him Little Dick.
||So... if his cameras are at HIS nipple-height, he'd usually be
navel gazing? Or REALLY strain his neck to make eye contact
