Face Make-Up Printer

Matsushita Make-Up Printer

Matsushita has filed a patent on this idea of “printing” make-up onto faces. Imagine having downloadable templates of make-up that has exactly the right colors at the right place. Or simply just the idea that make-up is done within seconds instead of minutes or hours (as perceived by the guys anyway).

Battery-powered, hand-held and armed with a liquid cosmetic cartridge:

The device ionises the liquid allowing an electric field to accelerate it through a nozzle to form a jet. The result is a make-up spray that can be turned on and off at the flick of a switch. But if that doesn’t do the trick, the device has a drip mode which can dribble liquid onto the skin instead. Perhaps it could be upgraded to print family snapshots onto your eyelids too…

    I saw a working prototype of this at SIGGRAPH a few years ago. It was pretty cool. Now comes the commercialization!

    Oh cool! I thought it’s still very far away from actual commercialization and the patent was more like a defensive maneuver. Looks like the chance of seeing something like this on market has just increased by that bit more!
