Time to get a manicure

hmmmm .... first 'eye-jewelry', now nail watches.
This was the runner-up in the Timex 2154: The Future of Time Competition
It was conceptualized by three Americans designers: Napoleon Merana, Steffen Schubert, and David Takacs. It comes in mulitple colors, is disposable and even glows in the dark when you press on the tip!

I just have a few questions...

Where do you suppose the battery goes?
What happens if you wash your hands?

I think this one (not even a runner-up!) it really quite cool! Check it out!

It's a cream you apply (anywhere) on your body - yes, I said anywhere! It is filled with nanobots that can receive voice commands and wireless information (such as broadcast time) and then arrange themselves in the form of a clock, a calendar, or any image the user desires, right there on the surface of the skin.
The layer of cream needed is so thin as to seem weightless. It wears off naturally and is replaced whenever the user wishes.

check out more on the contest site... here.

Lol great post! Yay to technology... You'll never know, in the virtual world today, with "micro" things being attainable, we might see this happening... for now let stick with colorful tattoos and traditional manicure... hehe
