Hehehe..these darn kids, what'll they think of next? When queried about the invention, the lads said that at least this is not as extreme as someone pointing a laser in your eye and cutting it so you don't need spectacles.
[I]James Sooy and Oliver Gibson have come up with Pierced Glasses - the most minimalist eyewear since the Pince-nez glasses that clip onto your nose was invented in the 1840's.
Here's the step-by-step:
Get pierced - an internally-threaded barbell that goes through the skin above the bridge of your nose
Use a tabletop mill to cut the L-shaped metal pieces that screw onto the barbell
Attach rare earth magnets to the glasses; these hold the glasses on.
Don't get rid of the bridge pieces; they let the lenses sit on your nose and take the actual weight of the lenses. [/I]
In addition, there are some links given where people pierced their eyeballs in order to dress themselves up a bit. :eek:
