Chaotic Moon, a company for software design and development is creating biometric tattoos that monitor your activities. The ‘activities’ refer to health or other biometric data that will be monitored by these high-tech tattoos.
Although the tattoo kit is still a prototype, Chaotic Moon’s CEO, Ben Lamm, claims that the device will be able to collect information and after that upload it and send it to medical staff or the military depending on the nature of the information.
The tattoo is temporary and washes off similarly to a fashion one. However, it cannot be easily removed or detected, making it a very useful device for the military.
What can the biometric tattoo do?
According to the manufacturers, the tattoo will be able to monitor your body temperature and even detect whether you’re stressed based on your heart-rate, sweat and hydration level. Moreover, the tattoos can also be used for location-tracking and could be very useful even for keeping track of your kid. The information gathered will be uploaded via Bluetooth or low-frequency mesh networks can be used just like for apps such as Jott or Firechat.
Chaotic Moon is a company that makes drones and fitness trackers but they are very excited by their new project as they believe it could be of great help both for military as well as for health. Speaking about the military, among the most important features of this tattoo include detection of poison in the air, identifying whether a soldier is stressed or injured or if the soldiers has pathogens in his body.
What’s also very important is that the tattoo is eco-friendly and doesn’t produce any side effects on the body. It simply turns it into a human circuit board.
Bio-tatts aren’t new
Biometric tattoos, although seem very original and new have been on the market for a while now. They are very popular among cyberpunks who like to use technological implants in order to manipulate their bodies. However, so far, cyberpunks have been surgically installing chips and magnets into their bodies, but rumors have started about tech-tattoos.
This has been confirmed by Tim Cannon, CEO of Grindhouse Wetware, a company that implants RFID chips inside human bodies. Then chips are used to turn on a car or open a door. Cannon claims there are rumors that say attempt at creating a more permanent biometric tattoo have been made, but it seems that the ink is not safe enough for humans.
Although there are many tracking devices on the market, the biometric tattoo could be a better solution, especially as a temporary device because it would be less invasive, since it doesn’t need surgery and also, cheaper.
