Craft (popsicle) sticks are the bulk of this inexpensive and easy to make project. I spent $10 on this one, and for most, it could cost up to $20 (but then you'd be able to make several pairs). They remind me a little of Geordi LaForge from Star Trek TNG. I was not trying to copy that character, I just sat down and ended up with this idea.
These can be used with or without the LED lights I added. Without them they are a sort of futuristic eye covering. With the LEDs they are like robot eyes. Yes, I can see out of them! Have fun!
Warning! This video shows one possible application of LED Robot Glasses. It is not necessarily meant to be cool. It is cheesy and I know it. You've been warned.
