Tattoo Touch Screens

Who thinks up these concepts? Even I find this one creepy.
Imagine! A touchscreen on your arm as a subcutaneous digital display powered by your own blood. It could be a video phone, a calculator, or more.
Yuck, imagine never being able to forget your phone just to get some peace. (It reminds me about the old joke where a business type receives a fax. If you’ve never heard it I can’t tell you here.) Just think – spam, phishing, and begging phone calls delivered directly to your body.
Here’s one idea I hope never comes to fruition. (Of course the technology that drives this could have excellent medical uses that do make a difference.) I don’t even want to speculate about what the upgrade path looks like. Imagine aging gracefully but having the tattoo equivalent of a rotary dial phone permanently inked on your arm.
Oh well, there’s a little Friday fun.
