Dattoos, DNA-based tattoos, create seamless connectivity and are
the ultimate in personal technology.
The Dattoo is, for now, a concept design by Hartmut Esslinger that
uses the body itself as hardware and network.



The basic idea is to use the body itself as the basis for hardware,
and the surface of your body as an interface.
As technologists have discovered, interfaces take up space; why
not use your most intimate space to connect.

Although this is a very far-fetched idea, the first steps have already
been taken.
IBM pioneered research in the area of using a living person's skin
as a computer network in 1996 with a system that could successfully
transmit data across skin at low speeds.
Microsoft was granted a patent in 2004 for "a method and apparatus
for transmitting power and data using the human body."

More recently, NTT has developed a technology called RedTacton,
which can send data over the surface of human skin at speeds of up
to 2Mbps -- the equivalent of a fast broadband data connection.
The transmission is achieved by minutely modulating the electrical
body field in the same way that a radio station wave is modulated to
carry broadcast data.

And is it possible to print an electronic circuit with ink? Absolutely.
Manufacturers already "print" RFID tags with a special "ink" that
attracts metals in a special solution.

Practical applications? What if you could transfer images from your
digital camera just by touching a pad on your PC? Or move music
from your computer to the phone in your left hand - by touching the
PC with your right?
In a more intimate space, the girl you just met could transmit her
phone number and other info with a handshake - or a kiss.

This is a very cool concept, and one I hope gets the further R&D
to create it.

I'd definately get it, though I'd want a permanent tattoo version,
rather than a temporary version.

Wow, this is interesting news. I'd like to see where this takes us.

Unfortunatley I do find some problems with this though.
Concealment and Abuse.



  • Concealment.
    Want to rob someone? Want to rob an establishment?
    Forget nylon stockings or balaclavas! Get a tattoo that temporarily disfigures your facial features!
  • Abuse.

    phone number and other info with a handshake - or a kiss.

    High-five a stranger, and have your product name tattoo'd on their forehead!

How could it change your face?
It's just like a normal tattoo, except it's computer interface.

I think we'll need to develop alot more different technology
to be tied in with this one to have to worry about those.

Good points about the negatives that an advanced version
could hold though.

These guys are wy ahead of the curve!!!
They have some cool stuff up their R+D sleeve wow

It's not just the dattoo's (digital tatto's, you print from your computer, and not only will the Dattoo recognize the user from the DNA sequence\
,but it prints out wearable!Well that''s their plan anyways)
(www.frogdesign.com...)

Check out the tribon (Its like head phones wraparound with a projector*I am assuming it project onto the retina?* Anyways you can assosiate with the internet and view images with ease while you talk, designing it for kids so far)
(www.frogdesign.com...)

..Or the GelFrog! (its like a binder with a diplay on the front with beautiful resolution, made of flexible materials. The internal memory has wireless tech built in so you can download and put everything on one binder)
(www.frogdesign.com...#)

I am surprised no one has any info on these here yet!

This technology could be very useful for the application for military camouflage as a body covered in this could allow for realtime enviroment concealment. Be interesting to see how this technology progresses though
