January’s Consumer Electronics Show featured any number of fascinating inventions. One takes the concept of individualization far beyond skin-deep. Neutrogena is on the verge of introducing 3D-printed, customized face masks, incorporating the use of the TrueDepth camera on the latest iPhones.
Face sheet masks can offer quick, creative and fun solutions for folks seeking a little boost. That doesn’t mean, however, that one size — or one group of ingredients — fits all. The Neutrogena MaskiD app allows users to take a 3D scan of their face, and various skincare agents automatically will be 3D printed to that user’s mask based on what it “sees.” For those still on the lookout of creative uses for 3D printing, the field remains full of possibility.
