When the MIT joins Microsoft Research for a product together, the technological world begins to grow much faster. In this case they have created a tattoo called DuoSkin, tattoos that connect to systems to act as input for smartphones or computers. Allowing it to collect data as changes in body temperature, transmitting data to other devices via NFC.
The project is really artistic, because they can adapt to any body offering artworks of all kinds and stylish and can be quite functional. The product is fairly inexpensive and easy to set up for just about anyone, and you can use any software for creating desktop graphics to design the desired tattoo. Then you have to feed the design with an area of electronic components, including NFC chips.
These new tattoos may contain embedded skin LEDs, generating light effects that respond to data captured or imported from external systems.
In duoskin.media.mit.edu you can see some more information about the applications as well as the status of the project, which has not yet reached to the market, so it is not possible to know the prices or define exactly all its possibilities.
