Tat’z Nail’z machine at CES

You’ve probably heard about 3D printers, but have you heard about fingernail art printers? At this year’s Consumer Electronic Show (CES), Tat’z Nail’z demonstrated their machine that combines technology and the popular nail art trend by printing any image you want on your nails, including your own self-portrait. And the machine takes less than 10 seconds to do this per nail.

The touchscreen controlled machine allows you to pick a design, upload an image, or take a photo of yourself at that moment. After hearing the demo pitch , I had to take a seat and test it out myself to see if this really worked.

First, the demonstrator prepped my nail and painted it with a special white paint – think of it as a blank canvas for my nail art to be printed on. Then, she applied a clear coat polish, which is like a base. After the paint was dry, I stuck my finger in the machine and pressed down to activate it. After a few selections on the touchscreen and sizing the image to my nail, I heard a couple clicks and the machine started to print.

The key is to make sure you stand still while you’re finger is in the Tat’z Nail’z machine. If you move, there’s a chance the image that was sized on your nail could get on your skin. If the paint does get on your skin, all you need is a cotton swab and nail polish remover to clean it up.

When the print was done, I carefully took out my finger from the machine. One last coat was added and then I was done. I noticed that the final coat brought out the vivid colors and made my nail glossy. The nail art lasts about two weeks and you can remove it with regular nail polish.

This is definitely a quick and easy way to add some personalized art to your nails. Right now the company is selling and leasing the machine to salons and spas – maybe you’ll see one in your neighbor hood soon. But if you don’t, you can check out their video here.

Debating Johnson’s recent promotion to the Lakers’ president of basketball operations with co-host Jon “Stugotz” Weiner on his ESPN radio show Thursday morning, Le Batard sounded dumbfounded by the Lakers’ faith in their former star who, according to the talking head, hasn’t proven himself in any of his careers outside of basketball. “What you’ve got here though, is a testament to the power of fame. And a testament to the power of a modicum of charm,” Le Batard said. “Because Magic Johnson is charming.

      U.S. President Donald Trump criticized the FBI on Friday for failing to stop leaks of national security information to the media and directed the agency to find those who pass on classified information. Trump's comments, in a pair of Twitter posts, come amid media reports that the FBI has refused a White House request that it refutes recent stories saying members of Trump's team had been in frequent contact with Russian intelligence agents during the presidential campaign. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the nation's top law enforcement agency, did not answer a request for comment on Trump's tweets.

    • Water released from Shasta Dam's top gates for first time in nearly two decades

      For the first time in almost two decades, water was released Thursday from the topmost gates of the dam impounding Lake Shasta, California's largest reservoir, marking another milestone in what is shaping up to be the state's wettest year on record. The release lasted only 15 minutes and was only a test to confirm that the gates were functioning properly in case they need to be used at a later time, according to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. The gates operated as expected, the bureau’s spokesman Louis Moore said. With the reservoir at 135% of its historical average for this time of year and nearly 93% of its capacity, dam engineers were releasing billions of gallons of water to make room for incoming flows from the surrounding foothills and Sierra Nevada, according to the bureau.
