EPSALONi / Interactive DIY haircutting

EPSALONi

As our generation starts to age, the future middle-age and elderly ladies are most likely to be Internet- and IT-savvy. The EPSALONi is a concept that turns home DIY haircutting into a virtual social activity.
Through bluetooth connection with any compatible mobile platform, the Epsaloni mobile application enables home-bound ladies to start a virtual home hairdressing party with her friends and family members who do not live with her. The hair-cutting device uses 3D positioning and gyro-sensor with webcam to perform 3D head scanning and image capturing to analyze and recommend hairstyles, and provides step-by-step haircut guidance.
