What is it: The Mattel Barbie B-Nail Printer is just like a regular inkjet printer only it prints images directly onto a fingernail. To keep the print in place a nonproprietary gloss (any nail gloss) must be applied.

Features: Software for managing, printing and importing custom or stock images, built-in camera, finger slot for accurate printing and more.

Availability: Summer 2009

Price: Similar price to a “Barbie Dream House”, which is apparently about $200

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
