Special Contacts Let You Look Emo, Even When You're Not

Special Contacts Let You Look Emo, Even When You're Not

On the off chance that anime contact lenses aren't avant-garde enough for you, this should fit the bill. Dutch designer Eric Klarenbeek has created contacts that give the appearance of crying. The crystal "tears" are attached to the contact by a thin wire, and due to interest from Klarenbeek's prototype, you'll soon be able to purchase a pair for about $270.

"You can't feel the wire dangling, it doesn't affect your sight and the lens moves along gently with your eyeball, even while blinking," Klarenbeek says. "If someone tugs on the wire while you are wearing it the lens will just fall out — or at the very worst the wire might break."

To see a short video of the contacts in action,

those are so weird and pointless! I could see them being used in a fashion shoot, but even then, better tears can be found. and I know that at least I don't want stuff dangling from my eyeball

Glue stones on your face and be done!!! Seriously, think of how annoying that no-see-um hair or fuzz that gets in your eyelashes is...and people want to do this intentionally?

I'm not seeing the point in these. I'm gonna search for an avatar now...

Cool yes, but what is the point? I guess photo shoots maybe... But I would not fork out over $200 for contacts just to look like I was crying. I think I would naturally cry and never stop if I actually paid that much for something so useless.

I agree with what seems to be the general consensus about these: they are gross and unnecessary. But the REALLY ridiculous part is that they are $270! WHAT A WASTE!!!!!!!

ok so what if you happen to forget that there is that thing hanging from your eye and your eye is itchy and you rub it???? also would your contact fall out from that thing hanging? that's just weird!!!!!

This is really weird, frivolous, and potentially dangerous. I feel like having something dangling from your eye is just asking for bad news.

this is one of the dumbest things.. and biggest waste of money i have seen in a long time.... why? it doesn't even look like she's crying.. especially since the "tear" stays in the same location....

You wouldn't be too "emo" if you had to wear fake tears that look like slobber or something coming from their eyes. Also, I wouldn't want to look sad if I wasn't unless it were for Halloween or something. And tears don't dangle from your freaking eyeball, or sweep across your cheek, or blow away when the wind blows. I think it's a pretty stupid, tbh.

Sorry if my quickly approaching middle age is showing, but, that's just really beyond repugnant. :...(
