Not only touch and super-connected clothes: soon we will be able to communicate with the smartphone also through our skin, through a #tattoo named #duoskin. It is called epidermal electronics and soon we will be able to find it all on us: the design of each tattoo is customizable, the colors are silver and gold and the aesthetics are fabulous. The prototype was created by a student of the Mit Media Lab in collaboration with Microsoft Research, is in gold leaf (the conductive material), integrates an electronic component and is transferred to the skin with a water pad.
Its purpose is to communicate away wireless with a device, on whose screen you can see the commands that your finger, touching the skin, will give. However, it can also be used to monitor skin temperature and to store data on our state of health. There is also another possible use: as a jewel, '' embellished '' with bright LEDs.
The tattoo is applied non-permanently. Furthermore, by including an NFC tag, authentication or payment operations can be carried out simply by touching the skin. The project is still immature, but it can be open to many uses.
