Google is developing “Skinmarks” which are smart tattoos that will transform skin into a living touchpad through embedded sensors.
This wearable smart device is the first to use rub-on tattoos
It is the latest innovation on the road to fulfilling Daniel 2:43.
“And whereas you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not join one to another, even as iron is not mixed.”
Skinmarks are similar in functionality to a smartphone. The sensor tattoos can be enabled by using a finger in a swipe or touch motion. Activation can also be triggered by squeezing around the area of the tattoo or bending a finger
One of the advantages of attaching the technology to the user is the ability to surf the net without looking. Think of it as a localized keyboard.
The Skinmark tattoos are fabricated via screen printing conductive ink, which is then embedded into the tattoo paper.
And like a smartphone, the skinmark tattoos have a light-up display.
However, its most innovative feature is the ability of the smart tattoo to conform to the irregular lines on the human arm. In essence, the skinmark tattoo is the first human-compatible smart technology that will adapt to human skin.
Back in 2013 Regina Dugan, formerly with DARPA and Google, discussed the future of smart tattoo technology. Seven years later, it appears that hurdle has been scaled. Forward to the 4:43 mark of the video as Dugan discusses the future of wearable tattoos. A future that has now arrived.
