I don't know how much you're planning on charging for these, Herr Doktor but I think you'll be able to retire after this! ;D
I say, Joe it's jolly frightening out here.
Nonsense dear boy, you should be more like me.
But look at you! You're shaking all over!
Shaking? You silly goose! I'm just doing the Watusi

I seems to be the case that everyone on the whole forum wants it (understandable, it is gorgeous, Herr Döktor) so it seems almost superflous, but...

I am also registering my interest.

I join my sentiments with the rest when I say that I absolutely must have one.  Seems you may have hit on a remarkably profitable idea there!  I would also like a gold one with two diamonds as the goggle lenses, but chances are I will never find a woman who would think that was romantic.

I think you just stumbled on the 'smiley face t-shirt' of the brass goggles forum, Doktor. :)

Does that mean Darren Brown is going to write a hackneyed novel about us?

Because what really happened was that the secret technology held by the Vatican was stolen by a secret society of Victorian scientists who left a trail of secret clues (which, even though devised by some of the createst minds of the 19th century, still only take one guy/girl about a chapter to solve) to the location of their secret lair. Unfortunately, another secret society (which everyone thought was started by the Templars) is out to use the secret technology to take over the world. Mwahahaha!

And that's how steampunk was invented. Honest. He could call it 'The Lost Brass Secret Code Key Symbol Goggles'. It's true, you know. He hasn't made it up, or plagiarised anyone's book.

Guess which author's books I think are crass, unintelligent and badly written? ... unfortunately, I have to give him credit for a sub-genre which has produced many far better books. Gaah.

Better authors: Raymond Khoury, Matthew Reilly, Sam Bourne.

Only ONE SLEEP left! See you in Lincoln!

Dan Brown, shurely?

Incidentally, the most donated author  to Oxfam is... Dan Brown, and within twenty four hours of the publishing of 'The Lost Symbol', I saw a copy in a charity shop, that's rather telling, isn't it?

;)

No, Darren Brown.  Author of "The Dali Code" (where the clues are hidden in surrealist paintings), "Analogue Fortress" (a clockwork conspiracy novel) and the percussion mystery "The Last Cymbal."

Not quite as popular as his cousin who keeps stealing his ideas and repackaging them.

Himself is also interested in the goggles ring (posting on his behalf as I'm working from home today and thus commandeered the computer)

How about modeling the ring on a comuter, then uploading it to Shapeways? There isn't a whole lot material in it, so they could be 'printed' pretty darn cheap I think. They offer a variety of materials as well, from cheap plastic to gold plated metal..

Stephen Fry summed it up nicely when he referred to The Da Vinci Code as 'loose stool water' and 'arse gravy of the worst kind'. ;D

Darren Brown would be the guy who hypnotises you into believing that The Da Vinci Code is actually a good book!

err.. that might actually be Derren Brown.  I believe he's a close relation of both Darren and Dan (or not if he's lucky).

nice plug.

I like Dan Brown's idea of carrying around antimatter in a box. FYI, Brown, that ONLY works in Steampunk!
