Sorry guys. This one’s for the girls. The Barbie Digital Nail Printer is part of Mattel’s new line of products called “beautronics”. This Nail Printer is designed to print images directly onto your fingernails using thermal inkjet technology and specially-formulated cosmetic grade ink.
Just insert your finger into the machine and a digital camera inside transmits an image of your fingernail to the computer. With the included Barbie software you can select from 1000’s of image designs and see a preview of the image you choose superimposed on your nail so you see exactly what it would look like on your nail.
If they want, kids can even upload their own pictures for use. The printer takes about 10-15 seconds for each nail. The Barbie Digital Nail Printer will be released in Fall 2009. No pricing yet, but young girls everywhere will be printing on their fingers. The Barbie tramp-stamp maker can’t be far behind.
