    I am also very much wanting some Deus Ex glasses, and want to throw in some ideas to help this project. Also, it'd be really cool to get these on the market and/or get some myself.As for ideas: - For the retractable part of the glasses, you could not go electronic and have a clamp attached to the bottom/back of the lens and have a little lever on the frame that you can pull or push to retract or extend the lens (see picture #1 for an example)- If going electronic, you could make it easier by having 2 buttons on the remote; one for retracting the lens and one for extending the lens- Instead of gluing the shades to your head (as this makes for a painful process of peeling them off) you could instead have a very thin but still strong piece of plastic connecting the 2 headset-like glasses a...

If you have more on this project, please let me know so I can contribute some more and if there is already a product of this I can get!!
