MFA students from the Art Center College of Design, Kristina Ortega and Jenny Rodenhouse made this incredible project/concept featuring some very high tech nail art. Visit their site here for more information.
Wearable technology is in its infancy. The future of wearable devices is still open for interpretation and shaping. Currently wearables are designed by tech people for tech people. They exist as novelties; promises of a ubicomp wearable world. Anticipating a wearable future brands have started to collaborate with fashion lines, but one has to wonder if these collaborations will be nothing more than glorified licensing deals. If wearables are going to be adopted into our everyday lives then we are going to have to stop designing them with the idea of one size fits all in mind. Context and specificity matter. That being said, we wanted to tackle the world of nail art and looked into embedding sensors into layers of a gel manicure.
This reminds us of Becky’s awesome NFC nail art!
