    seen that also - just be careful with indiegogo... I've Backed about 6 things via indiegogo now. 1 never eventuated and another was a scam.

      I've watched this twice and doubt it will be suitable for problem nails or ... mine, to be specific. Mine have too many irregularities.

        Not a clipper; it is a power file. Would recommend not using something like this for toenails. Fingernails would probably be OK. You can also use an old-fashioned type like this that combines clippers and emory board type files:

          Kinda looks like a take on a dog's nail clipper/grinder:

          My podertist office they use what to me looks like dremel tool with vacuum to buff toenails after trimming. I ask them to not use on mine. skin fragile and nails already thin.
          Like posted be careful with any type of grinding or filing your own nails. Infection from abrasions and skin damage is easy with messing with nails,

              That's a great-looking device. I actually bought one and tried it, unfortunately my fingers are a little too curled to make it functional for me. But I bet it could work really well for others. I also found a pricey alternative called Clipdifferent, and it's an actual nail clipper with mechanical clippers inside. Unfortunately, same thing in that the geometry doesn't work with my curled fingers. Oh well, I'm going to try the one that the OP suggestedas it looks like it might be more adaptable to curled fingers. Also, assuming it's not a scam, it's way cheaper than the others!
