A salon in Dubai has debuted a high-tech manicure treatment that could change the game for making payments.
Lanour Beauty Lounge has unveiled the ‘Smart Nail’ manicure, where a tiny microchip that uses near-field communication (NFC) technology is inserted into your nail.
When you tap your finger against your phone, the chip will be able to transfer information from your business card, or WhatsApp details. The Smart Nail might also have the potential to support contactless payments in the future, according to the shop’s promotional video. Currently, its microchips are not able to hold as much data, however.
The Smart Nail manicure is priced at 250 Dhs (US$68), if you wish to try it out yourself.
