By Justin Mullins Applying make-up can be a chore (so I’m told), and the methods of application have changed little since Cleopatra seduced Anthony with lemon-scented oil. But now the Japanese consumer electronics giant Matsushita (which owns Panasonic) is dragging cosmetics into the 21st century The company thinks the techniques used for inkjet printing on paper could be used to apply make up to the skin, so it has designed a battery-powered, hand-held device that houses a cartridge of liquid make-up. The device ionises the liquid allowing an electric field to accelerate it through a nozzle to form a jet. The result is a make-up spray that can be turned on and off at the flick of a switch. But if that doesn’t do the trick, the device has a drip mode which can dribble liquid onto the skin instead. Perhaps it could be upgraded to print family snapshots onto your eyelids too… Read the full make-up printer patent application. Fingerprint-reading biometric ID systems are becoming more widespread. But they have a serious disadvantage. Unscrupulous thieves armed with a sharp knife need only steal your finger to beat the system. The Japanese consumer electronics company Sony may have the answer, however, based on the ability of infrared light to penetrate further into the skin than visible light. The company’s biometric system uses an infrared camera to record the unique pattern of capillaries just beneath the skin, which can only be seen when blood is pumping through them. When this blood flow is cut off – when the finger is cleaved from the body, for example – the pattern disappears and the finger can no longer be used for identification. Thumbs up to Sony for this one. Read the full biometrics patent application. As spectator sports go, video games are no match for the football terraces or the racing stands. But Microsoft hopes to change that by giving its video games a “dynamic spectator mode”, in which the footage is streamed to a third party who becomes a virtual observer but takes no part in the action. In this kind of stealth mode, the spectator can swoop through the landscape observing the play from any vantage point, stop and replay the action, as well as cheer (or boo) the participants by means of an instant messaging system.
