Skin Deep Move over belts and bracelets — the new fashion must-have is a temporary tattoo. The Prinker is the latest way to get designs of your own creation printed directly onto your skin. Using cruelty-free, FDA- approved ink laid on top of a primer, the Prinker gives wearers a waterproof tattoo that lasts for up to 48 hours and can be washed off with soap and water. What really sets Prinker apart from store- bought temporary tattoos is the use of a phone app that allows users to upload their own designs or download other people's designs (it supports jpg, bmp, and png files). While it won't create an entire sleeve in one go, it can print images up to 40 inches long so you could, conceivably, break images up into numerous files for larger works. Each Prinker ink cartridge will produce about 1,000 designs before depleting and, no, it doesn't hurt. From $300. prinker.us Making the Cut Mammotion came on the scene just a year ago with the goal of creating eco-friendly robots for your home. Their new perimeter-free, wireless Luba Series robot lawnmowers are now on the market, giving homeowners an easier way to trim their lawn than old-school gas mowers. There are two options — Luba Air for small flat lawns or the Luba AWD for larger, more complex lawns. Each mower offers rear-wheel drive, serious torque, and the ability to climb hills (45 degrees for the Air and 75 degrees for the AWD). Users set the lawn perimeter through a phone app by taking a one-time walk with the Luba to define the space it needs to mow. Users can also set separate mowing zones such as a front yard and backyard, and the Luba will make its way to each zone. The app also thwarts thieves by locking the Luba if it's removed from the yard. Four optical sensors on the mowers will recognize obstacles like toys or flowerpots and steer around them, and it will return to its base if it starts to rain. From $1,899. mammotion.com BY RYAN THOMAS Heartfelt Jewelry TheTouch offers wearables that combine haptics and romance. The company's HB Ring lets wearers feel and share the heartbeats of loved ones. Just double-tap the ring and it'll pulse the heartbeat of a spouse, child, or friend. HB Rings are made of 18K solid rose gold or stainless steel with sapphire crystal housings and can be charged wirelessly in the ring box they come in. Similarly, the company offers a new TheTouch Locket, which also lets users feel and see heartbeats. Given as a gift, users can upload their own heartbeat via a smartphone app by placing their finger over the phone's camera button, which records a finger pulse, so the wearer can receive new or additional heartbeats. Each heartbeat is stored in the device's memory. From $1,290. thetouchx.com 78 MAY 2023 RANCH & COAST MAGAZINE
