Touch screens are soon going to become a thing of the past. Google is working on a smart tattoo, that when tattooed on the skin will transform the human skin into a touchpad. How cool is that?
The smart tattoo is the project of Google’s “SkinMarks” project, which will be a wearable technology of the next-generation devices.
How It Works
The tattoos are sensor-driven and can be applied to any part of the body. The sensors like can be triggered by the conventional touch just like how we perform on touch screens. simple swipe and scroll gestures can help navigate exactly how we do on smartphones. however, there can be certain gestures that can be specific to the skin surface. These smart tattoos will allow you to touch without even looking which means you can easily navigate through. This technology will revolutionize the way we use and see smartphones and touch screen displays.
What Are They Made Of
The tattoo is made from screen-printing conductive ink that will allow the tattoo to be touch receptive on the human skin. the innovative tattoo designs even have light-up displays, when touched, and custom drawings.
The tattoos are going to be sleek and thin, complimenting the latest technology trends. And I must say that this innovation is quite unique and revolutionary. let’s hope when this technology rolls out and performs.
