Because there will only be progress in the making of flexible and smaller electronic devices
Walking by the cosmetics section of a store today, a sign
advertising Really Shiny Glossy Lipstick caught my eye.
Apply a thin plastic film to the lips, containing flexible
electronics full of red LEDs (light-emitting diodes), powered
by the temperature
difference between the skin
and the air. Your lips will now
shinier than ever!
||It won't suit you, [vernon]
||Hey, I specified "you" in the main text, as a user of
this Idea, not myself!
||But will my lips still be kissable soft?
||[AusCan531], I suppose it depends on how thin
plastic film is.
||To All, there is a tech problem with this Idea that
it Half-Baked (or at least more-difficult to actually-
Bake). Some extra power source for the LEDs will
required. If there was enough energy available
the difference between air-temperature and the
surface-temperature of lips, to power glowing
the lips probably would already be glowing....
||A possible compromise might be for the
electronics to include some energy-storage
capacitors, which are slowly charged while the
LEDs are NOT glowing. Sensors detecting muscle
movements would trigger the LEDs only when the
wearer manipulates the lips into a big smile....
