Gaze-averting glasses

When you look at gorillas at the zoo, they might feel that you are threatening them. We don’t like being stared at. Fortunately, most of the time we’re invisible, so even when you’re staring at us, you might not see us (see this nice journal article by a particularly sharp hairless primate I know in Germany).

For those times when you know a gorilla is there and you actually do see it, these cool glasses will help you avoid threatening them or scaring them away. Of course, if you wear them, you might inadvertently threaten the invisible gorillas standing near by.
