Steampunky goggles feature working aperture

I want. I want. I want.

SmugMug

Today is a very bright, sunny day in Seattle. I wore my sunglasses. My sunglasses are rarely used, yet badass. They are not, though, as badass as these variable aperture goggles we found on SmugMug. Change down the aperture and you get less light. They're awesome.

Sadly, they're a concept and not actually for sale, which is too bad. While I'm not a huge fan of the steampunk movement, I understand it. That being said, I would totally rock these, if I could get them in my prescription. I'm that much of a nerd.

I would, of course, have to pair them with my floppy leather hat with a big red feather. If I'm going to go retro, I'm going to go all the way.
