The Glitter Machine is a pneumatic pigment stamping device. This stamping machine is meant to give the user the power to instantly achieve high impact eye makeup without hand application. The Glitter Machine seeks to bring the makeup machine from The Fifth Element to life.

The Media Lab is a place of magic and anti-discipline research -- where we can bring alive fantastical worlds that inspired us. The Glitter Machine was built for Science Fiction Inspired Prototyping, taught by Dr. Daniel Novy and Joost Bonsen.
