Beauty Technology

I found this today and this is very cool!

Title: Beauty Technology: Could your skin become an interface?

Even though the billion dollars global beauty business market is mostly supported by women and 4 in 5 women wear makeup everyday, beauty products still have not been thoroughly explored in relation to their use as wearable computers. In this talk, we will explore how to disrupt this frontier by placing technology directly on the body surface by embedding electronics into cosmetics. In this way, just like magic, the body becomes an interactive platform with seamless technology on one’s skin, fingernails and hair, in forms like Tech Nails, FX e-makeup and Conductive Eyelashes.

Finally, i could do this for my final project. This was just a small part of those functional requirements. Still a lot to do 🙌



Set Up & Demo Sistem


Ini tampilan error di command prompt semalam. Saya lagi belajar set-up sistem buat di lokal yang mengharuskan pake SSH, composer, dkk. Terima kasih untuk ka Ali yang udah mau saya ganggu waktunya dari siang sampe sore (waktu UK) buat ngasih tutorial step by step dan ngehandle error yang muncul 😂😂😂

Kemarin malam juga pertama kalinya saya mendemokan sistem ke klien (mulai dari set up sistem) sendirian.. Biasanya saya bareng sama ka Emil (ka Emil buat nge-handle urusan teknis, saya sebagai perantara ke klien aja). Ka Emil ikut juga sih ke tempat ketemuan dengan klien, tapi akhirnya malah ngobrol sama ka Eja 😁
