They may not have much in common with inked messages of love, yet electronic tattoos could help save lives. Here’s how.

At first glance, it looks no different than the multi-coloured butterflies inked on to countless shoulders. Yet there’s a lot more to this tattoo than meets the eye. Affixed to a patient’s skin, it allows vital data and healthcare information to be monitored remotely, transmitting it directly to the doctor responsible. It is packed with sensors and could prove a flexible, practical and non-invasive solution for post-operation monitoring. The solution offers major potential, and could also be used in areas beyond healthcare, such as measuring sports performance or managing objects remotely. Stuck to someone’s neck, it could analyze the vibrations of their vocal cords and transmit simple orders (left, right, start, stop, etc.) to an object or a video console. Society is only just getting to grips with the Internet of things, and it seems we are already looking to the Internet of the body. Perhaps time to look at the tattoo in an entirely new light.

Wonderful if used to help save lives, but not so good, if misused.

Tattoo's have been used for thousands of years to denote who owns you, from Roman Legionnaires to Biker Gangs to Concentration Camp prisoners.

Some cultures used them to denote criminal status, from pirates to yakuza. Only in recent years did they become acceptable.... through the media been pushed. Yes, some are really nice forms of art, but like anything else, re about to be used against you.

So, line up proles, go and get your medical details tattooed on a couple of ares of your body... it's for your own good... honest.

Well they can't just put an ear tag in you like they do with cows.

Off on a tangent

Otzi the 5000 year old body found in the Alps had tattoos which were on acupuncture points. Not only when checked did the points tattooed point to specific problems, which on examination we can say he had, but also this was from a time before the Chinese were supposed to have invented acupuncture.

No, just NO :no: :nono: :rant:
Yes, the media and government love this Internet of Things stuff, and I don't doubt for a nanosecond that they've got designs on putting this harmful tech actually inside of us as well as all around us :thdown: :evil:
