In 2008, Korean multimedia artist and graphic designer Soomi Park had an idea and perhaps a solution for Asian women who desire bigger eyes — the LED Eyelashes.  Powered by batteries, these futuristic LED ocular illuminations seem to accentuate otherwise smallish eyes (of a dissatisfied Asian girl), giving them the illusion of something grander.  Let’s get some visuals:

    Hi! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does operating a well-established website like yours take a
    massive amount work? I’m brand new to blogging however I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily
    share my personal experience and views online. Please let me know if you
    have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
    Thankyou!
