Steampunk Monocle

Found a british Steampunk enthusiast who is curently selling his Steampunk "Scientific Goggles" on eBay for a few quid. This is what he had to say about his invention:

"Imagine if you will the 19th century, built on the back of 200 years of scientific progress, forged in the super heated vapours of steam and iron, cog and gear, where zeppelin cities hover over a nation powered by steam itself, of clock work automotons and goggle adorned mad scientists. This is the world of steam punk.
The success of the inquisitor upon the scientific community was monumental.

By the middle of the 19th century, the grand human genome project had been completed, and with various fragile treaties with the martian imperial council, more complex and varied research was attempted, spawning a new wave of bio aetheric and ambient aetheric technology. by blending the fusion technology of the martians, with human curiosity and ingenuity, the Inquisitor took a brave step into the sub atomic world..
it has moving armateur, two lenses, one with a working iris. it has two flashing valves, an adjustable leather strap, microscope effect works."
