The Blinklifier by Tricia Flanagan is a headdress fit for sci-fi royalty such as Princess Leia, or even a futuristic version of Cleopatra. In addition to looking like it belongs in the distant future, the fashionable headgear also acts like it does. It is an interactive accessory with high-tech capabilities. When worn, it responds to winks by putting on a colorful light display. Upon more reflection, the Blinklifier by Tricia Flanagan could be likened to a bird-like mating ritual in which vibrant feathers are shown with fierce pride.

Interestingly, the Blinklifier by Tricia Flanagan doesn't have any visible electronic components. Stunning in size and design, it "works with a set of specially designed fake eyelashes that are connected to the head piece with skin-conductive ink drawn across the face," according to Psfk.
