Once again we are seeing technology pushing for methods that will prepare the way for the acceptance of the coming “Mark of the Beast” in Revelation Chapter Thirteen. Now Scientists at the MIT Media Lab and Microsoft Research have designed metallic body art that can control and communicate with electronic devices, such as smartphones or laptops. DuoSkin temporary tattoos, which can be made at home and wash off in a day, use the electrodes present in inexpensive gold leaf to create a conductive surface.

The gold leaf and a thin layer of silicone adhere to the body to create an “interface” on the skin that when touched can indicate certain commands to your electronic devices. The researchers developed three different types of tattoos. The first acts as a touchpad to control a computer cursor or adjust a music player. The second uses thermochromic pigments that change color when body temperature rises. Finally, the third uses near field communication technology to transmit personal data, such as photos, between your phone and the tattoo. CONTINUE
