This Smartphone Nail Art Printing Robot Startup Is All About Girl Power


Back in March 2013, two tech-savvy women – Pree Walia and Casey Schulz – launched a company with the hopes of empowering women and girls by creating technology that fosters unique forms of expression and creativity. Two years later, Preemadonna has released their first product – the Nailbot – and they want you to get involved.

The Nailbot uses your smartphone to print photos and custom art on your nails – literally, if you can import it from your camera roll or Preemadonna's phone app (releasing December 2015), you can wear it. Think: emojis, pictures, images, and even your own designs. You prep your nails with a base coat, then the printer's color cartridge (good for 5,000 manicures) does the rest.


"Our main focus remains on our power users – creative girls – and bringing a product to life that they will love," Walia told MTV News. "We are releasing our Augmented Reality smartphone app very soon where you can superimpose pics of your BFF or favorite celebs like Taylor Swift or Selena Gomez right on your nails." P.S. - how cute is Pree's custom MTV mani?! WE WANT ONE.

And this is where you come in: the company is recruiting ambassadors to help across three platforms – social bee, hacker and artist. So whatever your forte, this is your chance to be part of a unique, inspiring technology movement from the beginning. Pree and Casey's creation has already garnered them major industry accolades – the Nailbot was a finalist at TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2015 Startup Battlefield, and was awarded first runner up at Silicon Valley Robotics' 2015 Robot Launch.


Learn more and donate via the Nailbot's Indiegogo campaign – and you'll have plenty of time to join the team and follow along via Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and YouTube before the personal nail tech robots launch in fall 2016.
