If you love hitting parties wearing illuminating objects like shoes, caps, necklace, wristbands that light up and many such things that can give you the title of ‘cool dude’ in the gathering, there’s a new stylish wearable for you in town; LED eyelash that flashes by the movement of your head.
Calling it F.Lashes, Its creator and Arduino designer Tien Pham showed off this cool innovation at the Maker Faire 2017 Editor’s Choice, grabbing the attention of many futuristic people. F.Lashes can be controlled by tilting the head left and right. There’s a dance mode which can be turned on when you jump, making the lights on eyelashes start blinking and flickering. Another mode called ‘Sparkle’ shows up when you twist and turn your head.
“The F.Lashes light is NOT blinding,” posts Pham on his Facebook page. “In fact, I often can’t tell I have them turned on. 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.”

“They are powered by a watch battery and will last up to 4 hours. You can easily change out the battery, so it’s not a big deal. I wanted to keep them lightweight because the controller is attached to the back of your head by hair clips. There are thin wires that connect to each eyelash, but they are nearly invisible unless someone is close to you”, mentions Pham in his FB post.
These Fun interactive LED Lashes are very light in weight that you don’t even feel it on eyes and are easy to apply, almost same as the normal fake eyelashes are. As claimed by Pham, these LED lashes will flash in pink, red, blue, light blue, white, yellow, and green colors.
Sadly, F.Lashes aren’t available to purchase yet and the crowd will have to wait for a while, until the creators raise enough funds to release the product in the market, through their Kickstarter campaign that will be launched in the mid-July 2017. Chances are that the F.Lashes will be sold out real quick on its first launch, as the demand is already high.
