A new wearable plays light patterns across a person's eyelashes to make their eyes stand out at a party or a show

A new wearable called F.lashes lights up a wearer’s eyelashes with a strip of LED lights across their eyelids. The lights come in seven different colors and glow in a set pattern. This pattern can change or pause when the wearer blinks. The controller that powers the device normally goes into the wearer’s hair to conceal it from view, though some may get creative to keep the wires and battery hidden. The item was first revealed at Maker Faire earlier this year by the product’s creator, Tien Pham.

Pham had overwhelming support when he first showcased F.lashes, prompting him to launch a Kickstarter campaign. The campaign continues until July 21 with backers already supporting the project well-beyond its goal of $40,000.
