Dont know if you have seen this or not either but here it is

See link for picture .I do not know how to make the picture show up in here
It is really creepy if you ask me

Digital Tattoo Interface
Jim Mielke - United States

Her cell phone is ringing, but the display is turned off. She lightly pushes a small dot on the skin on her left forearm to suddenly reveal a two by four inch tattoo with the image of the cell phone's digital display, directly in the skin of her arm. She answers the call by pushing a tattooed button on her arm. While she's talking, the tattoo comes to life as a digital video of the caller. When she finishes, the tattoo disappears.

This Bluetooth device is permanently implanted beneath the skin. It is flat, flexible, silicon and silicone. Tightly rolled when it's inserted through a small incision, and then unfurled beneath the skin, it lies benignly between skin and muscle.

Through the same incision, two small tubes are attached from the implanted device to an artery and a vein. A coin sized blood fuel cell in the implant converts the blood's glucose and oxygen from the artery to the electricity required to power the device. Used blood returns through to the vein. The digital device's power source is the same as for all of the biological components in the body.

The surface of the implant that faces the underside of the skin is covered with a matrix of field producing pixels that activate a matching matrix of pixels tattooed onto the surface of the skin above the implant. The field penetrates the skin to drive the tattooed display, while the skin continues to provide its function of sealing the body from the world. The surface of the implant is also a touch screen control, pressed through the skin. Rather than ink, tiny clusters of microscopic spheres are injected, like tattoo ink, into the skin. Each sphere is filled with a field sensitive material that changes from clear to black when a field in the matrix is turned on.

This device communicates wirelessly with the world as well as with other devices implanted in the same body. It is always present, always on, but out of sight and non-obtrusive. It also continually monitors for many blood disorders, alerting the person of a health problem: A human version of the check engine light. Product styling is the latest and coolest downloaded display interface showing on any tattoo on the block. This product is waterproof and it is powered by pizza.

Wow....... I highly doubt this idea will fly.....

To many complications if you ask me. Also scary filtering an artery and converting the bloods glucose into electricity. Why not use some sort of solar or even human mechanics like, walking or shaking an arm to power it lol.

And what benefit is it really to have this under your skin.

Hey man can I borrow your phone?.......ok wow your arm smeels like dick cheese were you watching porn on your mobile again bro....


I think the coolest would be contact lenses with HuD's and such I believe they have designs and prototypes in the works.

Yeah I doubt very much this idea will take off.

would you stick electronics in you're arm just for a phone?

seriously there could be risks involved like cancer, device malfunction burn hole in your arm, do you want that lol.

tapping an artery for power supply?

OK, next. This idea gets the triple

First of all this "idea" is quite old. Remember seeing it waaay back.

Secondly, there's ALOT more uses this could be put to other then cell phones. For example monitoring your blood sugar levels if you got diabetes or keeping track of your heart rate if you got heart problems.

o the possibilities

i wouldn't be counting on it being so impossible electronic tattoos

I'm seeing an ever increasing amount of shows on tv about man and machine merging in the near future so id watch out if i was out

Here is more on that

If anyone in the industry is a frequenter of this site, which i suspect many leading scientist and technologists are, then i hereby volunteer.
I have thought long and hard in the past when threads about man and machine have come up and then i came up with same thoughts and feelings, go for it.

It is just another frontier to be explored and a frontier that could bring many benifts.
Imagine a way of interfacing with computers with having to lift a finger, direct sensory input from the computer, calculations theories physics all types of research could be done more quickly efficiently and better with direct technological interface.

The thought of man and machine as one doesn't scare me, i welcome it.

You should see what this guy is up to. He annoys the heck out of me, though - he seems to be doing only the hyper-sensational study of cyborgs. A bit of an attention-seeker, he seems to be. He put a chip in his arm so things can recognise him (like doors, etc.). He also had some electronic senses implanted directly into his central nervous system. I don't know how that worked out. Weird guy

If you are logical, of course!

I heard of that guy a few years ago as for a week or so his experiment was talked about in the U.K. news but then we heard no more.
I am glad that it seems he is continuing his work because controversial or not, it could be the breakthrough in new treatments that we need.

Another thing i thought was that humans will only evolve so far biologically, so it would make sense for us to take control of our own evolution through technological improvements to the human body and mind.

I will be following this closely.
