Lessons Learned The first FX e-makeup prototype comprised gelatin powder without flavor, distilled water and glycerin. This kind of FX makeup is often used for creating prosthetics such as wounds, scars, burns and blisters. Finding the proper makeup consistency depends on preparation given that it requires heating the ingredients. Our initial results were too thick and had the tendency to fall off depending on the skin properties and the user’s movements. Three participants wore the makeup for 6 h.

Another suggestion is to use it as an alarm for stopping dealing with her hair whenever she is continuously doing her nervous tick movement. We used 80 % of the data of each different touch to train our model and 20 % for testing its accuracy. Then, again, we tested the model with the users to verify whether the touches were being correctly interpreted. The prototype achieved 92 % accuracy on five touch gestures. Hairware was tested in the laboratory under the same conditions. Non-intended gestures and other factors could affect the results and a calibration method would be required.

In addition, this makes it possible to put the circuit in different accessory such as a hairclip, headband, brooch and the top of the hair extensions. This section describes the materials and the prototyping process used. It also shows the feasibility of this technology as both input and output device. Chemical Process for Creating Hairware Artificial hair extensions are chemically metalized for acquiring electrical conductivity and keeping a natural coloration. 5 by 25 cm each. Before going through the chemical process, they are cleaned and weighted.
