Google-Eye Lens for Pentax??

OK, here's something I found on ebay that I've never seen before - a Chinon Google-Eye lens! Anyone ever see one of these before?? Pretty weird.

What you see here is one of the first AF lenses for SLR. Ricoh made a similar unit. I am not sure, but I think it dates to the late 1970s.

Here is a link:
