Extreme Fashion: LED Eyelashes

A few weeks ago, we talked about LED smiles and the wacky possibility of having a scrolling LED sign in your mouth. Another extreme idea enters the fashion scene – LED eyelashes! Yes, these are tiny LED bulbs attached to one’s lashes so you can flutter your pretty peepers in style. Do you think it’s a sparkling idea? It could be something interesting but if you wear it with your LED smile, you risk looking like a glowing cyborg. The iconic sense of fashion of people has gotten them in different forms of media.

LED Lights Help In Decreasing Light Pollution

Take a look at the picture on the left. The sky bears an unnatural shade of yellow, caused by too much artificial light. That is light pollution in its finest – light clutter, glare, energy waste, and decreased night visibility. We have talked about scrolling LED signs and its many benefits. These LED signs are made of LED lights. What benefits are there if we replace conventional lights with LED lights?

With more unvarying levels of light, hot spots and dark spots are greatly reduced. These LED lights, if grouped together, provide li…

These neon lights and scrolling led signs transform the façade not only of the building, but also the place itself.  These programmable message boards will not only drive traffic to one’s establishment, it can also drive brand…
