Video Game Sunglasses Keep the Pixels out of Your Eyes

While I question the practicality of these perforated “sunglasses,” there’s no question at all about their awesomeness – as they’re embellished with cool images from pop culture and retro video games.

According to their creator, Hong Kong-based artist Millie Chiu, the tiny holes actually can help short-sighted or long-sighted vision by filtering out indirect light sources – the result being sharper vision.

Each pair is hand-drawn, with scenes ranging from Pac-Man and Space Invaders, to game health indicators, and a TV color bar test pattern. Remember those? I don’t remember the last time I saw one of those in today’s era of 24-hour-a-day broadcasting.

Each pair of perforated shades sells for just $20(USD) over at IAMKAMTY’s Etsy shop. If you grab a pair, let us know how well you can see out of them. Even if you can’t, you’ll still look cool.
