These Temporary Tattoos Double Up As A Touch Screen For Your Phone Or Laptop
Wearable tech for the fashion-conscious...
Finally, someone's created some wearable tech for your inner fashionista.
These may seem like innocent-looking, metallic temporary tattoos, but actually the science behind them is INCREDIBLE.
DuoSkin have created these 'smart' tattoos, which act like little computers on your skin and actually turn into touchpads for controlling your devices like your phone or your laptop.
Apparently, you can design a circuit using any graphic software on your computer and stamp out the tattoo in gold leaf (which is conductive to electricity) to turn your skin into a tech-enhanced (and highly stylish) remote control.
Apart from looking cute and totally festival-worthy, these tatts can be turned into trackpads, which can control your music playing device, or can even output displays where the tattoo can change colour based on your emotion or body temperature. Sort of like a 2k16 answer to a mood ring.
You can even create communication devices to exchange data between your skin and a phone app if that's something you feel like your life is missing.
If you want to jazz up your existing temporary tatts, embedding LED lights is just another cool option to choose from.
And what's even better is that they can be applied just like a normal temporary tattoo - just stick onto your skin, apply a damp cloth, peel off the tattoo paper et voilà, you've become a rather stylish robot.
