(It's also how they're going to get men used to the idea of wearing makeup, thus doubling the market for cosmetics, isn't it?)
I know this is anecdata but I have several female friends who do not care for make up, except for possibly when going out to a fancy dinner or the likes. They don’t like the tedium of putting it on and wiping it off every day, so they just don’t. Some of them do semi permanent things like getting fake eyelashes and such, and just redo it every 4 weeks or whatever it may be. I reckon this type of device would probably have some appeal to that market as well.
I think it’s a really cool device, and if it works as well as advertised in the (low resolution as it may be) video then I’d probably be one of those men who is in the market for One of these. I have decent skin but a few spots I wouldn’t mind to “get rid off” but can’t be bothered with make up.
Why? This is even more tedious than putting on normal makeup.
This appeals to people who want to look better but don't want to appear to wear makeup.
I think the idea of a CORRECT make up is that you don’t really see it.
Now you're ready to be beautiful and face the world.
Edit: also, cosplay outfits.. man, I really want to see that thing in the hands of artists!
BTW, the product is already available in Hong Kong where it's co-branded with SK-II, another P&G brand:
As a man I'd never do this. Just imagine you forget to recharge the thing or run out of "ink" so suddenly you have to turn up to work looking 10 years older. It's easier just to accept your age.
This seems to be for old men.
The display in the back of the CES booth shows a pretty woman as do the product marketing videos 
damn, black-tea you look like sh*t!!
oh yeah, I had a hard night of it, went out drinking with some old friends didn't get in until 5 this morning. slept 2 hours, have a bit of a migraine.
whoa, that black-tea is a king among men!!
I wouldn’t call it palatable, though, as intended use is on severe wounds. That doesn’t make for pretty videos, even on fake wounds (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=q8DnF0tF7D0, https://school.wakehealth.edu/Research/Institutes-and-Center...)
(that's what I thought when I first read the title)
I had worried that, but I've been wearing it for years and have noticed no difference. My acne is actually alot better now, but I put that up to maturity, not the makeup. I think it probably depends on your skin type etc. But I tried all sorts, short of roaccutane, to get my acne sorted and nothing worked. I figured I may as well just hide it until it disappears on its own.
I used to wear a lot, when I first started, now I just use a lightish covering, no one can tell, and even when they did, I couldn't care less. The confidence boost I got from not having a rank face was amazing. I'm sure someone would say that's not the healthy way of dealing with this sort of psychological stuff, but it worked for me.
I hope this helps someone else.
The main benefit would be speed, but once you are used to applying makeup you can get your morning face done in about five minutes.
That's one of those product that will really depend on the price point.
Dropbox doesn't do anything I can't do with ftp and rsync.
Probably, and the price over time as well what with ink cartridges and stuff. I have one of those old timey shaving kits with replaceable single blades, but I still ended up getting a Braun 9 series electric shaver. Sure, the manual razor gives you a real close clean shave, but it’s just not worth the hassle to deal with the brush and the soap and the blades and the hot water and the what not – the Braun does a perfectly fine job before I’m even done with prep work otherwise. Even though it was more expensive, the time it saves me is non negligible. I can imagine customers of this device making that very same consideration.
Do you go for this or still commit to eternally buying makeup
And trade your soul to the ink cartridge gods instead?
Is makeup usually too soft/powdery to be shot from a distance accurately?
Seems like it would be a lot faster than this device, albeit clunkier and more expensive. Essentially you would just stand in front of your mirror and hit a button.
On a sidenote, checkout Prinker, a temporary tattoo printer - might use similar tech as the makeup printer:
Also curious: could it be used to copy one face onto another face, when viewed from a certain angle?
Wonder if you could get different colours and have a in-situ printable tattoo system.
Built for industrial use, but don’t see why it couldn’t be used for basic tagging. I’m not affiliated in any way. Just stumbled upon it the other day and thought it was neat.
If I ever do though it will use water-based paint.
Presenter: Awww, really?
I'd pay good money for something that removes them without hassle...
I wonder if that's why both of the CES demos show guys.
If I have red wall and paint black over it I will not say I removed red paint.
That "remove" action applies to every item in the list:
- remove age spots
- remove burst blood vessels
- remove other blemishes
Is this a type of emacs/vim find & replace shortcut, or is it just something that people have picked up on the internet and run with?
They detect blemishes and apply a bit of makeup to hide it. I don't know what "anti-aging ingredients" they include, but presumably nothing different than off-the-shelf makeup products.
