This expertly crafted helmet has several small arms that hold magnifying lenses near the wearer’s face. They’re kept in place by locking hinges and crude gyroscopes that compensate for normal head movements. While the lenses are properly aligned, the wearer gains a +2 circumstance bonus on Appraise and Craft checks involving items that are small or highly detailed and on sight-based Perception checks when she uses an action to inspect something within 5 feet. However, the arms become misaligned if the wearer falls prone or is grappled, or if the helmet is damaged (hardness 5, 2 hit points). If the arms are misaligned, they lose their usefulness until readjusted (a full-round action that provokes attacks of opportunity).
