Robotic Manicures at JFK Airport

Again round 2001, when Caught on the Airport was launched, airport manicure stations had been an uncommon sight.

“Ridiculous,” one reader commented. “Who would try this?” mentioned one other.

Now, airport spas with technicians on responsibility for drop-in manicures and pedicures are fairly frequent.

What’s Subsequent?

Appears like robotic manicures are what’s subsequent.

XWELL, which operates airport XpresSpa areas, has teamed up with the Clockwork firm to deliver an AI-powered manicure ‘robotic’ to New York’s John F. Kennedy Worldwide Airport (JFK) Terminal 4, close to Gate B22.

The Clockwork MiNiCURE robotic guarantees to color nails in underneath 10 minutes with out human intervention.

Right here’s the way it works:

You want to file and form your nails your self and take away current polish (nail polish remover is supplied). As soon as seated on the robotic manicure machine a touchscreen will information you thru the expertise,w ith a stay assist function out there.

The value? $20.

XpressSpa hopes so as to add no less than 5 of Clockwork’s AI-powered robots throughout the corporate’s portfolio of 31 spa areas this 12 months with the objective of deploying as many as 25 items.
