Hey. Before I get into this – see the little audio clip above this? I’ve found a way for you to listen to my posts instead of reading them if you ever wanted to multitask. Feel free to let me know what you think of it!


That being said, the title “Neutrogena 3D scans your face” sounds more threatening than exciting. 

SkinScanner

In 2018, Neutrogena (a Johnson & Johnson company) launched a device that served as an attachment to your iPhone. Essentially, you could rub this item over your skin and in return, it would tell you about your skin issues. This was titled the “SkinScanner”.

Flash forward to CES 2019, and the Company has launched the MaskiD.

What is MaskiD?

MaskiD is the first ever micro 3D printed face mask. Let me explain that a bit better.

Using the TrueDepth camera functionality found in iPhone X, XS, XS Max, or XR, the MaskiD app takes a 3D image of your beautiful face. This information is then used to design the perfectly fitting face mask for you.

Now, I’ve only ever used like 2 face masks in my lifetime, and it might be that my face is definitely asymmetrical, but they for sure did not match my face exactly. Using the 3D printing technology, Neutrogena is able to get your exact eye alignment, nose, lips, hairline, everything.

That’s obviously not all, this would be a waste of technology if it was all.

Once in the app, you’ll be allowed to create specific face masks that target specific areas. You need a facemask that targets your cheeks specifically? Check. You need something for your nose and your forehead? Check!

Now, you can’t really buy this yet, but you can for sure pre order it!

By now, most of us have used Instagram on our computers. Right? We can do most things. Stalk people, like posts, see stories… but we have never been able to send anyone direct messages.

That is about to change. It was recently reported that Jane Manchun Wong, an engineer, spotted this new feature that might be some indication of what we’re soon to see.
