The Nailbot prints unique art, emoji, pictures and your designs directly onto your fingernail from your phone in less than 5 seconds. The Nailbot is not only a beauty device, it's an innovative robot for play, fun & inspiration for anyone who loves nail art - especially girls and women.
What kind of nail art will I be able to print with the Nailbot?
Pictures, Emojis, Licensed Images, Your Own Designs!
Eventually, you will be able to upload your own designs, share designs, buy designs and even use your social network feeds to print art…all through our smartphone app! We are building a mobile art marketplace powered by our Preemadonna community!
When is the Nailbot available for pre-order again?
Soon! Make sure to sign up on the waitlist!
Is the Nailbot Safe?
We have spent years working on various designs to ensure a safe product for our nieces, daughters, girlfriends and community. We are also finalizing our formulation and ink sourcing. We will be doing significant safety testing on the device before shipping and may seek a voluntary third party certification on the entire system.
How long do the Nailbot prints last?
They will last a few days - you do need to put a top coat to seal the image. We find that the traditional nail polish underneath will chip first before the prints actually fade.
How do I remove the Nailbot prints?
You can remove the prints with traditional nail polish remover or remover pads.
What happens if it prints on my skin or my daughter's skin?
We are working extensively on our accuracy - but you can remove with traditional nail polish remover or wipes.
Do you use Bluetooth and/or WiFi to connect your phone to the Nailbot?
Yes. Prototypes built have used both.
What resolution is possible with the Nailbot?
The resolution of the Nailbot is the same as traditional thermal inkjet products and can reach up to 1200 dpi. Note: While it can print with this resolution, the effective resolution for the Nailbot application will likely be less due to spacing constraints.
How is computer vision integrated?
Preemadonna has already proven our ability to develop and use computer vision in our products. Our first prototype, Gracie, was able to use the front facing camera to capture a picture of the nail and find the edges. Preemadonna's augmented reality app, which we are releasing, finds the edges of the nail in near real time using your smartphone’s camera to appropriately place the graphic onto the nail. For the Nailbot shipped, we will combine the computer vision functions of our augmented reality app with the printing functions to be able to automatically size the art to fit each user's nail size.
What kind of cradle or case is my phone sitting in when using the Nailbot?
The Final Nailbot for shipping will have adjustable cradle that is safe for your phone. And many girls have asked that we create mobile phone cases with the Preemadonna logo on it - so yes, those will come in time too. Make sure you keep tabs on our website.
What if I have small or big fingers or fingernails?
The cradle can accommodate most fingers/fingernails of girls. We use your phone's back facing camera and advanced computer vision algorithms to detect your fingernail - so we will be able to size your fingernail accurately!
Will the Nailbot paint my full nail with the white nail polish and pre-print polish automatically?
Not yet. We are working on a Nailbot that automates the 'polish change' - but it is not ready for shipment or orders. But we know this is what many women want!
What is your warranty program?
We are committed to a 1 year warranty for the Nailbot kit. There will be more information and terms and conditions that will be forthcoming with our next crowdfunding campaign.
What is the Preemadonna Ambassador Program?
Our Ambassador program is a way to incorporate our pre-teen and teen supporters into our company and movement. Our Ambassadors are signing up as Hackers, Artists and Social Bees - our program and offerings are serious fun.
Who do you see using the Nailbot the most?
Girls LOVE the Nailbot. But really anyone that thinks art and tech are cool will get a kick out of the Nailbot.
Have you tested any of your prototypes on people?
Yep. Casey and Pree are also great guinea pigs:)
I identify as a male. But I want to use the Nailbot - is that OK?!
Sure! We welcome everyone that celebrates creativity into our company. You are definitely a Preemadonna!
Can I beta test the Nailbot first?
Our Indiegogo backers, Community Partners and Ambassadors get first access.
What is the “Maker Kit”? Can I buy one for my classroom or youth tech camp?
So many girls have asked if they could build their own printer. So we created a maker program for girls to program and build their own touchscreen printer. This printer is NOT to be used to print on fingernails - girls can instead print on paper or stickers. The Maker Kit uses Arduino and will come with written and video tutorials.
Can I build mobile applications on top of the Nailbot? That would be a great way to have your pre-teen and teen Preemadonnas contribute their computer science skills?
In time, YES! That is exactly our intention. Sign up as a Preemadonna Ambassador or if you are part of a social purpose organization, get in touch!
Can I or my daughter design art for the Nailbot?
YES! That feature will be integrated into our mobile app. In the interim, we are showing girls how to use digital software to create fun nail art. Learn more about our Artist program with our Preemadonna Ambassadors initiative.
What happened to the first Nailbot we saw on your website and YouTube Channel?
We’ve been working on our Nailbots for a long time! Gracie – the early Nailbot – does work! But it is not ready for commercial sale. The touchscreen application is quite novel and we have significant IP filed – but it is not an ideal customer experience just yet. Stay tuned to our company’s progress and you will see it offered for sale in the future.
The Nailbot is so cool for my 13 year old daughter, but do you have a Nailbot for me?
YES! Though pre-teens and teens are our “power users,” our Nailbots are meant for everyone that expresses themselves with cool art and nail decoration, including our moms, millennial girlfriends and nieces. Even our nephews want the Nailbot!
Future Nailbots: We have been working on our entire product roadmap for three years. We want every girl and woman (or person that loves creativity!) in your family to have a Nailbot that decorates their nails - whether with art designs or full coverage polish! We are a transparent company and hope to involve our earliest supporters in our product development!
