Doctor Claims That He Can Magically Transform Brown Eyes to Blue via Laser Surgery

2 Nov

 

 

There is something about blue eyes that can pierce another person’s soul while also acting as a revealing window into your own. Brown eyes? Not so much.

What if you wanted blue eyes, though? Color contacts? Meh. Try this new laser surgery thatll permanently transform your brown eyes to blue.

Brown to blue, permanently. That’s what Dr. Gregg Homer from Stroma Medical in California says he can do. His Lumineyes procedure uses a laser tuned to a specific frequency to blast the brown out of eyes into blue. The process only takes 20 seconds too and it literally removes the melanin—the brown—from a persons eyes, which in turn reveals a blue color in 2-3 weeks (of course the blue isn’t real, natural blue eyes have lower melanin in the front of the iris—the blue color in blue eyes come from the same effect as to why the sky is blue).

Dr. Homer says he still needs about $800,000 to complete clinical trials and if all goes to plan, the procedure will be available in 18 months outside the US and 3 years inside the US. The process is expected to cost around $4,800. I can imagine many wannabe starlets getting this done right after a boob job.

Storyverse is the most interesting future of books. The Pandora of books.

2 Nov

Suppose someone took every meaningful detail from all the books you love. Every song mentioned, every person, every food or place or movie title. And what if they did that for all the books everyone else loves, too. The ones you’ve never heard of.

Suddenly you’ve got a whole world of seemingly random people, places and things, all gathered in one place. Together they create something vast, wonderful and entirely new. A Storyverse.

A place where details touch, overlap and lead you further. To new music to listen to. New movies to watch. Places to visit. People to know. And of course, new books to read. Getting started is simple. Just choose a book. See where it takes you.
