LED eyelashes! This is so amazingly interesting and creative.
These LED eyelashes could be just the thing to light up this year's Halloween costume. Designed by Korean artist Soomi Park, the LEDs sit directly underneath the eyes and are powered on or off as the head tilts downwards and upwards, respectively - presumably to avoid blinding the wearer.
The electronics to power the LEDs and detect tilting of the head are cleverly disguised as a set of headphones, so those seriously considering creating their own pair of light-up-lashes need not despair that unsightly wires will ruin this unique look.
But apart from a desire to stand out in a crowd, why would someone bother with this ocular accessory? According to Park's website:
"The LED Eyelash project is brought into the world to find an answer to this simple question: Why do women want larger and bigger eyes? In particular, Asians tend to have stronger needs for bigger eyes as a standard of beauty."
