“There ARE thin wires that connect to each eyelash, but they are nearly invisible unless someone is close to you. (If they are that close, I suggest you give them a kiss.),” designer Tien Pham says cheekily.

The lashes will be available in pink, red, blue, light blue, white, yellow and green. Pham demonstrates the fun eye accessories here:

For those questioning their safety, the company says they are just like regular false eyelashes which you apply with eyelash glue. They are also not blinding: “I often can’t tell I have them turned on. I have to cup my hand over my eye to see the light.”

The lashes also do not emit heat, as they are powered by a 3.3 volt watch battery that lasts up to four hours and can be switched out as needed.

The company will call for Kickstarter donations starting July this year. JB
