Could we soon be carrying all of our medical and financial information on a tattoo? Software company Chaotic Moon has developed a “tech tattoo” that gets embedded into a person’s arm and can track a person’s financial and medical information. Eric Schneider, the company’s hardware creative technologist, explained the tattoo can monitor if a person is about to get sick.
“Rather than going to the doctor once a year for your physical, this tech tattoo can be something you put on your body once a year and it monitors everything that they would do in a physical and it sends that to your doctor, and if there’s an issue they can call you,” Schneider said. “So the tech tattoos can really tie in everything into one package. It can look at early signs of fever, your vital signs, heart rate, everything it needs to look at to notify you that you’re getting sick or your child is getting sick.” The tattoo will transmit this information wirelessly to a mobile app or computer being monitored by their health professionals. Schneider also said that people would be able to carry their financial information through this tattoo. FULL REPORT
