F. Lashes started of as a Halloween project with Dave Taylor, Tien’s co-inventor. Dave & Tien Pham both worked in a electronic company, and one day, Tien seen him working with LEDs and asked him could they incorporate them into a outfit and then the idea evolved into wearable LED eyelashes.
After a video of me wearing f.lashes during Maker Faire in San Mateo went viral, I realized their worldwide potential. The reaction has been unbelievable. Both Davey and I are awestruck by the response to our f.lashes. We can hardly believe that a small side project that we worked on in Davey’s basement studio during our spare time would generate such worldwide attention. Tiem Pham
Stand Out And Be Different With F. Lashes
These battery powered LED lashes would be great for Festival’s or a Rave and the wire is very small to the eye!! F. Lashes will be available in various colours to suit your outfit and have a lasting power of four hours which are powered by a coin battery. The coin battery is extremely safe and is used in most watches. They light up with the movement of our body giving us unique led light up lashes and they don’t affect your sight in any way.
F.lashes currently offer five different light effects: Liquid Pour, Twilight Sparkle, Endless Winks, Knight Riding, and Hyper Burst. More effects are being developed.
Liquid Pour scrolls light in the direction of the head tilt. Twilight Sparkle generates a random, sparkling pattern. Endless Winks alternates the lights on each eye, getting faster with a head tilt. Knight Riding emulates a side-to-side scrolling seen in some sci-fi television shows. Hyper Burst lights up both eyes with a jump motion. The effects can be activated by either motion or button presses to change modes.
F. Lashes recommend you use your favourite fake lash glue adhesive and will take less than 60 seconds to apply.
I can see these being extremely popular next year as they will be released to the public in January. I would highly recommend not to wear them in the rain, but would be perfect for Summer months. Have fun and dare to be different!
