A Company called Chaotic Moon has announced a new type of wearable called Tech Tats, which are temporary Tattoos that can be used for health an fitness monitoring.
The video below gives us a look at these new Tech Tats and how the technology works, the Tattoos are used to create circuits on you skin and then they can collect, store and send and receive data.
Chaotic Moon is pitching this idea for Tech Tats, a collection of biosensors sitting on your skin. The idea is less like laying a circuit board onto your hand, as the video above shows, and more like having a slightly more protrusive tattoo with a bunch of chips on it.
On the tattoo, an ATiny85 microcontroller stores and receives data from temperature sensors via electroconductive paint. There’s also room on there for an ambient light sensor that illuminates LEDs when it’s dark. And unlike a fitness tracker, you can mount it on places other than your wrist. The tech tattoos could be used to monitor a child’s vitals after a surgery, or provide a less public (or more, if you choose) display of fitness tracking.
You can find out more details about these new temporary tattoos over at Chaotic Moon at the link below, the technology looks very interesting.
