What's the closest thing to these folding binoculars? Answered

 I was watching Fringe, and a guy had this cool pair of binoculars that folded almost flat. It's obviously a prop, but what's the closest thing to these rectangular, flat-folding binoculars?

You can buy them - they are folding opera glasses.

That exact pair is on ebay now.

You're welcome.

(You did see that they only magnify 2½ times?)

They also tend to be moderately low quality, as opera glasses/binocs go. They do work, they're useful if you really need something that fits in a shirt pocket, but don't expect too much from them.

The ones I bought after asking this were about $10-15, that seems to be what they go for on eBay.
