As discussed previously here: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/chat/strange-kickstarter-projects-today-f-lashes/

...and one only needs to look at the first post in this thread to see that that kickstarter was not the first.

Side note: Larger eyes are a survival mechanism for young mammals (including humans). We are programmed to 'care for' our young by identifying them with, among other markers, large eyes/pupils.
This evolutionary trait then follows through to adult hood where large eyes become an attractive feature in the opposite sex.

That's true but part of it has to do with our eyes not being able to "grow" like other body parts. Hence the eye tends to form almost adult size from birth and then as our heads grow the eye/face area ratio diminishes. Nevertheless we identify and have more emotional reaction to big eye/face ratio which would be baby and puppy and anime characters.

One must not forget it is not just eye size. Pupil/iris size is a big factor. The more dilated the pupil or darker larger iris (see Limbal ring too) has attractiveness. That's why you don't find a large eye with mostly white sclera showing and a tiny pupil being cute.. That's more bug eye. You need large and dark with minimal white showing and large in proportion to rest of face.

The previous video posted showing a young lady doing a review of the eyelashes with a ton of electronic gear in the background that would be the envy of an electronics hobbyist... Seems someone has taken issue with her and made a whole blog about it here:

http://sexycyborgisaliar.blogspot.ca/2017/05/naomi-sexy-cyborg-wu-is-liar-and-fake.html

I would not like my kids (daughters and son) to see this channel... It is almost as bad as that YouTube channel showing half-naked women trying to teach how to code. Let's call it what it is... Adult entertainment for men. Wife certainly wouldn't approve either if a husband was "learning" electronics and coding from watching that.  :-DD

I don't know, there is no evidence for what he writes. And looks like she can use 3D modelling programs etc. :

I think we will wait and see when Jane jumps to the discussion, and I think she knows Sexy Cyborg in person.

BTW one other Youtube channel worth checking out is Naomi "SexyCyborg"s: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCh_ugKacslKhsGGdXP0cRRA
I happen to appear in one of her videos...

I am all for this sexycyborg lady doing her thing. Unfortunately I can't watch her with my kids or wife... So I'll stick to Dave Jones to learn my electronics!  :-DD  At least he doesn't do his show half naked.  :-DD

Interesting fashion item. I can't see any problem with them, though I think they are way beyond Dave's expertise. We need someone like bigclivedotcom to evaluate them.  :-+

There was a live interview on hackaday.io:

https://hackaday.io/event/26992-making-in-shenzhen-hack-chat/log/66288-making-in-shenzhen-hack-chat-transcript

She seems to be genuine. And she doesn't like it, that many people don't believe that she really did the projects herself (at the end of the interview). Also interesting background information about Chinese culture.

Didn't know she used Tinkercad, looks like a good and easy to us program: https://www.tinkercad.com

I think its difficult to be taken seriously when your marketing tactics boil down to cheap tricks. I personally find it very hard to take someone seriously that constantly makes everything "sexy". But maybe this says more about my bias then anything else.  8)

At the end of the day, her tactics have worked, and it was a path for her to rise above the din. I guess the downside is, it may be hard to get taken seriously. The true test is how she evolves over time. Ageing may be her biggest career path obstacle at this point. ;D ;D

Ben already took the next step years ago:


Sexycyborg certainly made a big investment in silicone and silicon for her channel.

I wonder if this is an "optigrab" situation for those who have seen the movie "The Jerk".  Those LED's _have_ to be bad for your vision!

nope, she got called on the lie by Dale Dougherty (CEO of Maker Media) on twitter and her fake career is in jeopardy of being ruined in China now.

There is no evidence that it is a lie, and in fact Dale Dougherty apologized for his tweet. See here for more details:

Yes, and I'm glad he took notice of my suggestion back then. Though I was disappointed Clive never actually sported them because he isn't usually shy of making a bit of a fool of himself. I've snorted the odd cup of tea over my keyboard with his shenanigans, and can't help wondering if Big Clive with his ZZ top beard all downlit with fancy LED eyelashes would have been a youtube viral hit.  :-DD
