Our final project follows the trend of “Unnecessary Inventions”: objects which are meant to be fun and functional but are not in high demand by consumers. We wanted to create something that was enjoyable and whimsical to use. So, we created the Steampunk Super Glasses. These glasses are not your ordinary sunglasses. They have two main features: flip up lenses which respond to the amount of light around you and miniature wipers in case it is raining. The wipers are activated by a switch on the hat. The lenses flip up according to data read by a photosensor on the hat. The interior of the hat conceals all of the electronics and wires for the glasses.
