Electronic tattoos, this is the technology that Bill Gates says will replace cell phones


Cell phones have been with us for so many years that it's getting harder to remember when the first ones looked like briefcases for firing nuclear weapons, but they have evolved. Today, cell phones have gobbled up everything almost destroying entire markets like compact cameras and taking a lot of weight off others like personal computers. Although in the latter tablets are also very guilty. more...

The Future is Exciting: Temporary Electronic Tattoos

Researchers have developed a new method that allows electronic circuits to be placed on the skin as easily as a child's tattoo.


Researchers from the College of Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh (CMU) and the Institute of Systems and Robotics at Portugal's University of Coimbra have developed a simple and efficient method to attach robust and flexible circuits directly to human skin. Previous techniques for electronic tattoos have usually been too costly, but the new method should enable anyone to augment their skin with a wafer-thin network. more...

An electronic tattoo for part time cyborgs

For some researchers, the Internet of Things only seems complete when humans are also networked with it as a kind of smart element. Human Computer Interaction (HCI), as described by Peter Samulat in "Industry 4.0 or the Industrial Internet of Things," has long been concerned with the interaction between users and (mobile) end devices. In the past, however, so-called wearables were mainly responsible for monitoring and information. Now, however, computer scientists at Saar University and the U.S. company Google want to open a new chapter with electronic tattoos. more...
