Innovative New 'Tattoos' Bring Us Ever Closer to the Age of Cyborgs

Newly developed SkinMarks turn the human body into an electronic controller via temporary tattoos.

We are presently witnessing the most exciting time in the course of any advanced civilization. We live in an era in which we constantly watch science fiction concepts turn into reality. One of the most fascinating things we are currently witnessing is humanity slowly dipping its toes into what it means to be a cyborg.

The “tattoos” are able to sense touch on electrodes less than a millimeter in size which have the ability to register simple inputs, such as squeezing, bending, or even just touch. Thus the human body becomes an electronic controller supporting output.

Though it will be some time before SkinMarks and other similar cyborg
technology are commercially available, it is undeniable that the future
of our species is one of cyborgs, and that future has already begun.
