Dubai (CNN)A beauty salon in Dubai is giving new meaning to the phrase "chipped nails." Lanour Beauty Lounge is offering a tiny microchip for customers' fingernails.
The chips can have information embedded that allows them to be used as a digital business card, or to pass on information such as an Instagram handle.
They use near field communication technology to connect with mobile devices. "We install the information that you want, like your name, your mobile number, your social media accounts and website as well," salon founder Nour Makarem told CNN.

I thought microchips were also under the crazy inflation hike? How could this business model be sustainable under that? Sounds like this is an attention-grabber for the uber wealthy.
