New line of wearable technology lets users control drones with fingernails, eyelashes

Posted: Updated:

A scientist has created a new line of wearable technology that combines conductive materials and beauty items to allow users to remotely control drones and other mechanical devices.

Beauty Tech Designer Katia Vega created the line of beauty technology.

She uses designs such as metalized eyelashes, RFID nails and conductive makeup in her work.

Wireless signals are sent from the wearable attachments to different devices. For example, blinking and eye that was fitted with metalized eyelashes would create a circuit which could be used to power a motor in a drone.

Vega’s website says practical uses of Beauty Tech would include using fingernails to pay for goods instead of credit cards and blinking to levitate objects.
