Ever been way too busy to make a doctor's appointment for your physical, but wished there was another way for them to collect all your medical information? Or, what about wanting to pay for dinner with your credit card without ever having to take out your wallet? While it may seem too good to be true, Chaotic Moon has developed a solution to do all of that and so much more just by attaching a little tattoo to your arm. Back in 2015, the software development firm created a prototype for these all-encompassing "Tech Tats," and they have recently resurfaced because it is just SO cool.
The brainiacs at Chaotic Moon have developed this product with the medical, banking, and fitness industries in mind. "The Tech Tattoos can really tie in everything into one package," said Eric Schneider, creative technologist, hardware at Chaotic Moon. "So it can look at early signs of fever, your vital signs, heart rate, everything that it needs to look at to notify you that you're getting sick or your child's getting sick."
How is this different from your current wearable? Well, it can go anywhere on your body, not just your wrist and it can even be washed off like a temporary tattoo. They create a circuit on your skin and are able to monitor body temperature, stress levels, and more medical data from your body. It's unknown when the Tech Tats will be available to the public, but Mashable reports that the ultimate goal is to make it super cheap, so you can buy a box like a box of Band-Aids.
