What a fun thread this has been to read.
Anyone have thoughts on something like this?? For $20 CAD free shipping I am considering giving it a try. Looks like the lights should be easy enough to melt off with a soldering iron.

Wrong optics? Wrong distance from eye?
Wrong everything. It requires special quality lenses and they are expensive. If you want one I'm selling.

Cool thanks, but I am not interested in buying a set at the moment. Yours look great though.
I am just messing around DIY and came across that product. I pulled this lense out of a headlamp and am planning on going for a swim later to try it out. I will probably understand better after actually looking through one!
