Marketing: we want to add these air vents into the sunglasses.
Engineering: why?
M: they're cool and we need some new feature to sell.
E: You don't need air vents. The glasses are not big enough to steam up.
M: Ok, let's make the glasses bigger so they steam up then we'll need the air vents.
E: So you want to create a problem so you can say you fixed a problem?
M: Spot on!

Isnt this just basic capitalism 101? Create a defect so they can sell you a solution

My glasses are not big enough to steam up but insects can get inside them. Someone needs to invent bigger sunglasses to keep insects out of your eyes, but they might steam up... How about bigger sunglasses with vents! :whistle:

I have noticed a trend at this year's tour towards the big, ugly goggle style. They're pretty horrid, inelegant things.

Some designs over the years have been perfect, really well fitted, elegant, cool looking, keep everything out, airy and cool inside, some of the Oakleys (jawbreaker) and Rudy Project (Tralyx) designs have been like that. And they should stop there, but I suppose manufacturers can't stand still and it's that which forces them to design these flawed monstrosities. Those Briko that Cippolini wore which made him look like an evil bluebottle, the "Marvel Villain" over the top design Oakley eyejackets, and the current crop of "Kitzbuhel men's downhill 1984" ski goggles.

We'll probably look back and laugh one day.
