If you’ve ever wanted to change your nail varnish, but don’t possess the time, help could be at hand. A new concept puts tiny screens with a wireless connection on each nail – allowing patterns to be immediately converted from an app
The ‘bloom your nails’; concept today won a prestigious Intel contest for wearable computers, raising hopes it would one day become a reality.
‘Bloom your news is a set of wearable devices that are skillful,’ said Gin Lee, the Taiwanese student who originated the concept.
Users can replace the patterns and design via a mobile application.
‘Users can upload their own architects, and even sell them to other users,’ Lee said. ‘Through the syncing between the app and nail, you can enrich your fingernail patters and make sure you stand out.’
The nails include wireless chips, letting them to pass.
The battery powered nails have enough force for an entire day’s wear, Lee stated.
At night, they are simply removed and put along a special recharging stand
The concept was part of chipmaker Intel’s Make it Wearable project, a global year-long initiative sponsored by Intel to support the evolution of wearables.
Students (ages 13 and up, except where prohibited), architects, technologists, and makers can get involved in the competition
