Personally tailored manicure? Intelligent wearable device by adding the chips? It totally sounds fictitious. But now 3D scanning and 3D printing can turn it into reality. Recently, one Japanese appliance giant crosses the industrial boundary to enter into the manicure industry via collaboration with SHINING 3D. Through EinScan-Pro 3D Scanner, the company allows manicure customized to specific nails of each lady. Convenient, alluring, firmly attached in place, most importantly it also makes feasible the identity authentication.

Upon investigation of several scanners available on the market, the giant appliance maker selects the handheld EinScan-Pro 3D Scanner by SHINING 3D to output accurate stereoscopic

data for manicuring. Then, pattern is designed upon the stereoscopic data acquired and manicure piece is worked out by the 3D scanner. Upon completion of the last link of coloring, an exclusive nail piece is thus brought into being. The customizing initiative has also been concerned and reported by NHK News Channel.

If the object has enough details, the EinScan-Pro will automatically align multiple scan meshes to form a perfect 3D model.”

In fact, the giant appliance maker has revealed in the interview that the introduction of 3D scanning technology can not only customize the nail pieces but also save the nail data of the client. For requirement of manicure service, the user may first pick up the adored pattern online and show to the manicurist, and then go to the nail salon to have your exclusively opted nail piece equipped. One member from the Commodity Arrangement Department of the appliance giant said, “This service offers attractive nails to women who have no time to visit the nail salon.”
