Dattoo... The future internet link?

I saw this article and it gave me mixed feelings.

Great..... a new way to connect easily to the internet
Wrong.... your entire life is wellknown to the TPTB

Five years ago, Frog Design founder Hartmut Esslinger envisioned a technology that “could influence notions of community, identity, and connectivity with minimal impact on the physical environment.” Using an online design portal, users would select and try out a customized electronic processing device that they would then print onto their own skin. The DNA Tattoo, or Dattoo, could include printable input/output tools such as a camera, microphone, or laser-loudspeaker – it would be up to the user, as would the Dattoo’s aesthetics. Most intriguingly, it would capture its wearer’s DNA, to ensure an intimate user/machine relationship.

What do you guys think about this "revolutionary" technology?

Wow. Just how far will people go for the next step in technology? I guess, the sky is the limit? Quite hideous. Just my opinion

So it's just a concept as of yet? I really just cannot understand at all how someone is supposed to "print out" a circuit with the components they talk about...and then apply it to your fact they claim it's so non-invasive it can even be washed off at the end of the day or applied to regular clothing. It's a potentially good idea...however I'd only download and use open-source dattoos because I know I wouldn't be screwed over because the source is open, hence the name open-source, and it would be free, instead of purchasing a new one each day as they suggest. Unless of course they patent the technology or whatever and monopolize the market or something...

Open source is indeed a good thing but still I have mixed feelings about it.
Because of your DNA being used your own safety or anonimity is gone to my opinion.

It's all fun and games until someones DNA gets hacked...

The final concept aims to achieve a convergence of the following capabilities: DNA-reader and identification technology; nanosensors and interactive "touch reading" for finger tips (Braille); pattern and image recognition; self-learning and educational applications; living materials that change shape and feel; flexible OLED displays; full voice interaction, directional laser speakers; bionic nano chips; and cyborg components.
