LED Eyelashes Designed to Make Asian Eyes Bigger

Posted on November 13, 2009

For some Asian women, appearing more Westernized through having larger eyes is a very real concern. Short of plastic surgery and makeup, there are not many effective ways to give off the appearance of being more in tune with the Occident than the Orient.

Designer Soomi Park has thus developed LED eyelashes to give Asian women the appearance of larger eyes and to satisfy their desire to become cyborgs. They can be controlled with subtle head movements, allowing the wearer to turn them on and off with only a simple tilt of the head.

Unfortunately, the LED eyelashes do not come equipped with laser-shooting capabilities. The video below gives an accurate demonstration of their use and how they actually look when on an Asian woman.

Stupidity is in the eyes of the beholder. This is nothing more than a sad, pretentious attempt to be artistic.

It's human nature to want to be different then what you are in one aspect or another. It's learning to accept who you are that's the tricky part.

when i look on this i remember jordy (joint optical reflective display by NASA) close to what Giordi La Forge of star trek. Anyway its fashion to the limit and how the general public react.

all your comments are null... did you see jinra's comment? This isnt some attempt to look westernized or attempt to get bigger eyes... its just an artist's creation... literally. look at the link... some much of the world loves to think that asians envy westerners, I guess. BTW I'm a white americian before you all go saying I'm biased or something.

You are an insulting fool. Wanting bigger eyes doesn't mean they want to be more westernised, they just want to have prettier eyes.

They look kinda cool and cyborgish, except that looks blinding-- not just from spots before the eyes from the lights either. Too much direct light exposure=cataracts at a young age.

That's just about the most stupid thing I've ever seen on. Honestly, their eyes look bigger without the eyelashes.

Large eyes is not an indication of wanting to be westerners. Just as shaving off cheek hair is not an indication of a westerner denying his hairy heritage for a clean Asian look.

Fuck sakes bigger eyes doesn't equal trying to look westernized. Bigger eyes is a universal standard of beauty not just a WESTERN standard.

I think they're pretty cool, but it must suck to have a flashlight pointed at your eyes 24/7.

its very sad. You are born with the eyes you have and wanting bigger eyes to look more westernized is ridiculous.

Wanting larger eyes doesn't necessarily mean they want to look more westernised, they just want prettier eyes.
