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.
Step 1: Materials
Machine thread screws #6-32 x 1.5" (#6-32 x 38, 1mm) and corresponding nuts
elastic hair band (rubber band would work too)
2 LEDs (mine were flat green, 3.0v each)
4 ft. of bell wire (low voltage wire)
1 - 4 AA battery pack with on/off switch
Glue for hot glue gun.
phone splice connector
wire wrap if desired, or solder them
Step 2: Drill Holes
Use a few more than you need for each side, to compensate for any that split and for the dent the clamp puts in the first one.
Do one side at a time, and then keep that lot in a separate pile from the others. The reason for this is unless you can drill every last stick exactly the same, when you start assembling them they will bind up and won't slide onto the screws. So since each group you drill will be slightly different than the next, keep them separate for easy assembly.
