This Instructable is a very easy one and comes in handy for any would be spy!

Every good spy needs to always have someone covering his back, but what happens when you have to go it alone behind enemy lines? This is a solution for just such occasions. Enter the I-C-U 007 Specs. They supply the needed 'eyes in the back of your head' that your partner would have provided. Super simple, this can be done in only 10-15 minutes or less with only a minimum of tools.

OK so lets get to it... the bad guys are lurking behind you!!

Step 1: Materials and tools

The first order of business is to gather the proper tools and materials. Here is the list that I used but you can modify some of them to make use of items you have in your toolbox!

Materials and Tools
1. A pair of sunglasses
2. An old CD you no longer want
3. Duct tape
4. Tin snips
5. End cutting pliers

That's it!

Step 2: Get cutting!

Now we're getting into the nitty gritty!

Put your glasses on to prevent any flying material from getting into your eyes.

Take your tin snips and cut into the CD!

What you are looking to do is to cut a small piece of the CD out, about the size of your thumb in a rectangle shape. You will be using the shiny side (top) of the CD so make sure there isn't and writing or graphics on the part you cut out. As you are cutting you will notice that there will be small stress fractures along where you are cutting. Don't worry about that right now, we'll get to that in a minute. The CD will most likely lose the back plastic panel as well but again that doesn't matter.

Once you have your rectangle cut out, take your end cutting pliers and snip the edges to get rid of the stress fractures. Now you have a nice clean edge!
Cool idea, going to modify a little. Probly use something other than a cd. Get a profile pic, bro!

Ouch! More like "ICU Express Sunglasses"!

A few suggestions, so nobody gets hurt:
1. Sand off the CD edges, maybe round them off some more with a lighter.
2. Put the CD bits at the *edges* of the sunglasses, not the center!

Flatter sunglasses work better, though at the cost of the mirrors being more obvious.
