    It would be cool to have a hinge to flip up the lenses much like you see with jewelers glasses

    Where would you mount the hinge?

    My guess is above the lenses, so you would cut the padded area and likely compromise the compression of the frame that's integral to keeping the on your face.

    I think it would be a shame...

    Hate is such a strong word...if you like them, they can't be all that bad I guess. :)

    Send them back to whoever sold them to you with a note that says thanks for letting me try them on.

    If you are serious, get them scanned and 3d printed. Then you would have a prototype to start with.
