So now since the LED daytime running lights work so well for cars, it should work well on people too. And that is what South Korean multimedia and graphic artist Soomi Park believes too. She has created the LED Eyelash for women, which according to her is an alternative way to make eyes look prettier or larger. This is especially important for most Asian women and the LED Eyelashes make this dream for big eyes and bling come true.
This, slightly over the top 'facial make up' has a sensor that perceives the movement of the pupils in the eyes and also the eyelids. If you are wearing it and move your head, the LED Eyelash will flicker. According to its creator, it is as easy to use as false eyelashes and it is like a piece of jewelery in someone's collection.
The LED Eyelash won Soomi honorary mention under the section of Interactive Art at PRIX Ars Electronica 2008. The juries said, "Soomi Park's LED Eyelash is in a category of its own-glittering, yet profound, clumsy yet extraordinarily beautiful and strange, and dealing with important issues of gender and identity with a disarming and charming sense of playfulness." How quaint. The thing is, this proves that those LED lights on that Audi/Porsche/Mercedes/etc you see outside are just 'bling', and not something that is there to warn everyone that an Audi/Porsche/Mercedes/etc is coming and you should either get out of the way or be run over.
However, this may help LED Eyelashes users navigate safely through the pedestrian underpass while trying to catch the next train at the nearest MRT Station. People would most probably move aside when they see the person wearing them.
