I think everyone has heard of the Smart tattoo where people will be able to perform electronic functions with their bodies through use of a tattoo. Well, now introducing Tech Tats which will provide the same function as the Smart tattoo except it will be applied with Conductive Ink, not applied under the skin.



Who needs a smartwatch when you can have a smart tattoo? The tech team at Chaotic Moon Studios, a software design company, has made it possible, though you shouldn't expect any cool flaming skulls or eagles just yet. These temporary wearables work by combining conductive paint with tiny electronic components, creating working circuits on the surface of the skin.


As with the other tattoos, one will be able to keep medical or financial records, etc...Be able to have security credentials, etc...all in a wearable tattoo applied on their skin. Exciting times. What says ATS?

I don't like the idea and I wouldn't get it.

While they are at it they can put a clock on your arm and shock you to death when the want to. Like the movie "In Time".

"I assume your retinal scan will open this door, whether you are conscious or not."

So now, could stealing your wallet be as easy as chopping your arm off?

I think the same thing. What if someone is able to hack into your Tattoo and upload a virus? Or what if they are able to shut your heart down remotely through your tattoo? Strong implications here.....

That is amazing! The future sure is interesting.

They can't shut down your heart through a tattoo, that is powered through the body somehow. Thermal I suppose.
Shutting down the heart requires quite some electricity, and a little shock of 0.5v won't do anything.

A virus in your tattoo would merely mean, that the tattoo needs to be looked at, nothing will happen to your body, or can happen to your body. Besides small voltages.

Another fiendishly horrible way of turning people into walking debit cards.

Thanks OP. I so wanted to know about this.

I honestly don't see this going anywhere for a while. The data transfer needed to do anything really cool would generate too much heat and burn the skin. This might be a way to temporarily 'chip' someone depending on how small they can scale it down.

The reality right now is that an implant is the only real option as far as 'useful' 'biotech.'

I wonder how our bodies will respond to it. Imagine being able to communicate by holding your palm up to someone else palm. being able get live news updates while at work, maybe an implant in the eye to send said images and text straight to your optic nerve. The future is beautiful and terrifying, hopefully those in power will be blocked from misuse by hackers who actually want this for human evolution rather than control. Hopefully our hive mind will be free of chains.

I have some grave reservations about all this...

That being said, this would allow for easier and less invasive interface between the body and any powered armour one might wish to design...

Ooooh the possibilities!

No. Whatever scanner they employ will be combined with sensor technology measuring body heat (thermography) blood pressure and pulse (through induction). The scanner will know if the persons retina, forehead, wrist or 'tattoo' is living or not.

More like a bar code that entry way readers could pick up when you pass by. Conductive ink bar codes… truly, the Mark of the Beast.

it's amps not volts that stop a heart. it only takes 100mA to stop your heart.
a example tasers put out 50,000 volts at 1.9 mA (0.0019 A) to 2.1 mA (or 0.0021 A), depending upon how it is measured.

That would depend on how the signal would be transmitted to the eye implant. A range of tiny antennas (which we can make very very small) would eliminate any need for a circuit drawn on the skin. One could merely broadcast the signal like we do today over wifi or radio. Unless maybe it is some private channel which would only be available through contact.

I imagine a hardwired implant would be most secure. Would suck to have someone access/attack your visual cortex without having to bypass anything that could detect threats.

HAHAHA I love how everything is the mark of the beast to Christians. I am pretty sure your bible makes it clear that the mark of the beast will be known for what it is and forced upon those too weak to resist.

Link it to your endocrine system and you can either have a mood ring that is accurate or a lie detector.

Yes it does describe it in quite a lot of detail. No, it is not forced as the Bible describes. Firstly, offered the choice. If choice is not taken up then one will not be able to buy and sell. Later, the Beast gets really angry and starts killing all those who don't have the mark OR number of his name written on them.

All lots of jolly good fun.

Tech wearables are already here , as in clothing and watch accessories. The tech tattoo is already here. I would like something less invasive like this ink. It is only a matter of time before many people have them.

My only hope is that it doesn't become mandatory.
