All the world is a theater and you, with shades, will riff upon it. Seeing the humor in things is sometimes a matter of the company you keep. Laughing at all the world's ills becomes so much easier with Mike/Joel and the bots along for the ride.

You know you want me, baby!
Take a look at some photos of this thing in action: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gianteye/sets/72157622837429705/


Cut out in 1/8" acrylic and assemble with 1/2" 4-40 screws and nuts. The spidery lines in the frames and around the fastenings are to relieve the material near small details to prevent them from snapping off. Wear. Riff. Enjoy.

If you want your own pair you might consider Ponoko's "Hire a Maker" service: http://www.ponoko.com/ponoko-id/id-overview

Don't ask me for a pair, I won't be making them.

No results.

I had adapted these to print and printed a pair for Joel Hodgson and he tweeted about them here:

Rad! That is gosh dang exciting. I hope he wears them around.

This should help people to make their own pair on http://Ponoko.comPonoko.com.
I went ahead and put it in a template and checked it for fitting with 1/8"~3mm thick materials. Thanks for sharing your fun design!

That would barely cover the cost of materials to make it I reckon.

Um, you left off a "k" in your title.

"shades" kinda rhymes with "k". So it's a play on words, some might even find it a bit clever.

Like the MST3K opening song suggests, you should really just relax.

I'm taking the plans to my local plastics supply shop
amp; seeing if I can get at least one.

Me too. I was serious. I don't have a laser cutter, but I WANT. Someone make/sell them, PLEASE!

hi i can do this for you

Giant Eye, I don't suppose we could convince you to sell these on eBay? PLEASE!

"Someone should cut a pair and wear them to the Rifftrax Christmas special."

OMG OMG OMG I know what I'm doing!!!

I'm really flattered everyone's such a fan. Someone should cut a pair and wear them to the Rifftrax Christmas special.

Absolutely brilliant! I'm going to cut myself a set as soon as possible.
