Tech and fashion/beauty come together in this new invention by Tien Pham and Davey Taylor – F.lashes. The ‘fun, interactive LED eyelashes’ is not commercially available yet, but a Kickstarter campaign is set to begin around mid-July.

The wearable tech is powered by a watch battery and can last up to four hours. They are put on with regular eyelash glue and are relatively sweat-proof. F.lashes react to movements, so the light patterns/modes will change as you dance, tilt your head, jump, and twist. They also come in different colors: pink, red, blue, light blue, white, yellow, and green.

See the F.lashes at work below.

The LED lashes are lightweight, and they are connected by thin wires. The controller is located at the back of the head, attached using hair clips. According to Pham, as stated on the brand’s Facebook page:

“The light is NOT blinding. 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 do not emit any heat and there is no danger of shock at all – it’s a 3.3 V watch battery, so it’s very safe.

“They are relatively sweat-proof. You probably can’t jump in a pool with it on, but I have tested it out and dipped it in a glass of water. They still work, so a little sweat isn’t a problem.”

The LED lashes work in different modes, including the Sparkle and Dance modes.

Price for the F.lashes has not been determined yet, but Pham says he will ‘keep the price as low as possible’ because he would like more people to have it.

The piece of wearable tech seems fit for clubbing, raves, and other dance parties. What do you think? Would you be interested in getting one in the future? Leave a comment below.

On March 27, 1998, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officially approved the use of Viagra, an oral medication that treats impotence, invented by British scientist Dr. Nicholas Terrett. Since then, men and women have turned to the drug to keep their sex lives, well, alive.

Viagra, with the chemical name Sildenafil, was originally intended to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and angina pectoris (a form of cardiovascular disease). But chemists at the Pfizer pharmaceutical company found that the drug can induce penile erections typically within 30 to 60 minutes. Seeing the potential to market the drug as a cure for impotence, Sildenafil was patented in 1996 and was approved by the FDA two years later as treatment for "erectile dysfunction," the then new clinical name for impotence.

Dr. Nicholas Terrett has been regarded as the 'Father of Viagra.'

Although the belief has recently resurfaced in modern times, the idea that the Earth is flat is actually an old one. In fact, it dates back to ancient times and it’s more surprising that despite the numerous researches and evidences provided by modern science, there are still some people who subscribe to this archaic concept.

For example, we’ve recently shared with you that story about an Arab PhD student who made a thesis, presenting his own scientific ‘proofs’ that the world is indeed flat. The said work earned mixed reactions not only in the education sector but also from netizens everywhere.

Flat Earthers have often been lambasted online for their unorthodox beliefs.
