    Nice, but the artist might’ve put a more plausible strap on them.

    I can’t really get enthused about yet another reason to empty the oceans of fish.

    I’d be interested to see what materials tests he’s done on the “plastic”. I don’t just mean strength either. He’s currently only using heat and compression to hold the scales together, so I wonder what kind of testing he’s done doing things like hand washing the glasses. How well do they hold up to dishwashing liquid? It may be that he needs a bonding agent to coat and protect the scales. That said, using a waste product as the bulk of production is still a terrific starting point.
