Light Up Your Eyes (Literally) With LED Lashes! #WearableWednesday

You may have seen these amazing LED lashes trending on Twitter this past weekend, and if you’re like me you were curious as to how they work. Hackster.io has the details over at their site.

Glowing wristbands. Neon sneakers. RGB shades. Blinking cat ears. Fiber optic braids. Just when we thought we’ve seen all there was to light-up wearables, we bumped into Arduino designer Tien Pham at Maker Faire Bay Area, who showed off his latest creation with hardware engineer Davey Taylor: F.Lashes.

As its name would suggest, F.Lashes are lightweight, interactive false LED eyelashes with various modes that can be changed at the press of a button: scroll, dance, and sparkle. Currently, the rave-ready accessory comes in pink, red, blue, light blue, white, yellow, and green, though more colors are likely in the future.

F.Lashes can be applied using normal eyelash glue. Thin yet practically invisible wires then connect each eyelash to a custom PCB and a 3.3V watch battery (which lasts about four hours) attached to the back of your head by hair clips.

Contrary to what it might seem, F.Lashes aren’t blinding to wear. “In fact, I often can’t tell I have them turned on,” Pham says. “I have to cup my hand over my eye to see the light. You might see a bit of light when you’re in a dark room, but it’s not much.”
