the disturbing sound of loud blinking

Amplified Eye Lashes is the name given to my latest product that works best for wearers of glasses of all types; reading, distance, and sunglasses etc.

It's a simple product requiring some miniature microphones to be attached to the inside of the glasses along with a pair of equally tiny motion detectors that turn on and off the microphones the instant they sense the blinking movement of the eyelids.

The signal is relayed to a portable amplifier and speaker, capable of delivering the powerful sound that is generated every time the wearer blinks. Additional controls allow echo, delay, elongation and other effects to be applied to the resulting output.

Amplified Eye Lashes has no practical function other than to startle, amaze and annoy those in the vicinity each time the owner of the device blinks their eyes.

       Why not have microphones attached all over your body, continually broadcasting through a trolley-mounted speaker stack that you trundle around behind you?

       Justin Bieber would buy that, [poc] ...   

       But you'd need to include web streaming.

       Worthy of a croissant for that alone. [+]
