These Scratch-Proof Safety Goggles Have No Lenses, Just Steel Mesh – Core77

Here’s an interesting take on protective eyewear: New-Zealand-based Kiwi Ideas Company has developed Safe Eyes, a pair of safety goggles that don’t have any lenses. Instead, your peepers are protected by a stainless steel mesh, in either fine (0.35mm) or standard (0.7mm) perforations.

These might not keep you from blinking fine sawdust out of your eyes and will make your vision a bit grainier, but they’re guaranteed not to fog, and will prevent your retina from being pierced by an itinerant splinter, chip or metal shaving. The company reckons the trade-off will be acceptable for folks involved in the following industries and activities:

* Arboriculture
* Building
* Chainsaw use
* Concrete cutting
* Construction
* Drill press work
* Fencing
* Horse harness racing
* Jewellery manufacturing
* Logging Masonry
* Metalwork
* Mining
* Overhead drilling
* Plastics cutting, grinding and shaping
* Portable sawmilling
* Quad biking
* Rural firefighting
* Silviculture – pruning and thinning
* Timber mills
* Vineyards
* Fire brigades
* General home use
* Hedge trimming
* Lawn mowing
* Paint scrapping
* Water blasting
* Weed eating / line trimming

I don’t know if these are for me, but I like the outside-of-the-box thinking. They’re for sale on Amazon for about $25 a pop.
