Rapid Robot Manicures

Clockwork's Nail Painting Robot Paints Nails in Less Than 10 Minutes

— June 1, 2021 — Fashion
Clockwork is a company that's introducing the first robot manicure and it sets itself apart with a solution that's fast, safe, precise and free from small talk. According to Clockwork, "the average woman spends 3,120 minutes a year on her nails," and it offers a time-saving solution that promises to get customers in and out in less than 10 minutes.

The average manicure can cost anywhere from $20 to $60 and Clockwork offers a much more affordable rate of $8.

Since the quick manicure services are provided by a robot rather than a human, appointments are contactless and the Clockwork "minicure" represents the future of beauty services. According to the company, it is on a mission to design robots to "liberate people from everyday mundane tasks."
Trend Themes
1. Robot Beauty Services - Clockwork's robot manicure innovation is a sign of the growing trend in robotics in the beauty industry.
2. Contactless Services - Clockwork's use of a robot manicure provides a safe and contactless solution for customers in the beauty industry.
3. Time-saving Solutions - The demand for faster, more efficient beauty services is growing and Clockwork's robot manicure offers a quick and affordable time-saving solution.
Industry Implications
1. Beauty and Personal Care Industry - The beauty industry could benefit from disruptive innovation through the integration of robotics like Clockwork's manicure robot.
2. Hospitality Industry - Hotels and resorts could implement contactless beauty services using robots to provide a safe and efficient experience for guests.
3. Retail Industry - Retail stores that offer beauty services could benefit from incorporating inexpensive and quick robot manicure services to attract customers looking for time-saving solutions.
