When you hear the phrase ”Tech Tats”, you would think it’s a new extension to the world of tattoos; actually it’s not. Tech tats is the only way to have your bio and vital tests right at home.
“This would be implemented by securely storing data on a skin mounted micro controller and transferring the data when the user specifies based on a gesture or fingerprint on a tap to pay style device,” Lamm explains.
Its a tool that enables you to do without going to the doctor, as simple as sticking a bandage to your body but much complex in its work. It contains ATiny85 microcontroller that connects data received from bio sensors, basically a board with chips & thin circuits made of electric paint on top of your skin.
The current model has temperature and ambient light sensors, but expected to add more vital-reading sensors in the future models such as heart rate sensor and so. Though not expected to hit the markets soon but Chaotic Moon Studios ensure that the device will fall into a reasonable price range. Definitely the coolest looking bio-wearable made so far. I know for sure we could use one of these Tech Tats here, since it’s a common fact in my country that people don’t trust doctors. It would be a great place to start if physical tests can be done at the comfort of their homes.
