NAIL TECH:

As clothes embrace technology, it is no surprise that the beauty industry is also impacted.  Why not make your manicured nails work for you? A group of individuals at the MIT Media Lab have developed NailO; a decorative wearable device that connects to your preferred electronic devices.  It’s as big as one of your nails and when wearing it, your ‘tech tack’ is inconspicuous.  NailO is embedded with sensors, smart chips and a microcontroller which allows you to operate your computer, cell phone, etc. by a wave of the finger.  Although not yet available for purchase, it is a legitimate creation that deserves attention.  This is not the first time that inventions have integrated the use of our nails which to me says that ideas are out there and they are brewing.
