A Brazilian PhD candidate named Katia Vega has some waycool ideas about wearable technology that go far beyond gadgets and clothes. She’s thinking about instrumented makeup and nail finishes:
We propose the use of products on the human body surface that hides electronics, are easy to attach and remove, are ergonomic and highlight the wearer’s personality.
For instance: conductive makeup to connect/complete circuits, metallized false eyelashes as switches, RFID false nails.
There’s a lot of very interesting forward thinking here. Worth tracking.
