This is a short video of inventor Simone Giertz demonstrating the lipstick-applying robot she built (previously: her slap-you-awake alarm clock). It works pretty well provided you're going for that Heath Ledger's Joker look. I would not recommend using it before going out on an important date. I dunno, or maybe you should and see if your date can look past the lipstick in your hair and ears to your real inner beauty. You know I went out on a date once. ONCE. You know what the woman said to me? Nothing, she just glared at my roommate with a, "You didn't tell me you were bringing HIM."
Keep going for the video.
Thanks to Allyson S, who agrees it's about time Simone invent an automatic ear-piercing machine.
