So many candidates for the Mark of the Beast!
Here’s the latest.
Some of us may soon willingly carry a tattoo embedded with a person’s financial and medical information.
CBS New York reports, Jan. 29, 2016, that a software company called Chaotic Moon has developed a “tech tattoo” that gets embedded into a person’s arm and can track a person’s financial and medical information.
Eric Schneider, the company’s hardware creative technologist, explains the tattoo can monitor if a person is about to get sick, and transmits this information wirelessly to a mobile app or computer being monitored by one’s health professionals. He enthuses, “Rather than going to the doctor once a year for your physical, this tech tattoo can be something you put on your body once a year and it monitors everything that they would do in a physical and it sends that to your doctor, and if there’s an issue they can call you. So the tech tattoos can really tie in everything into one package. It can look at early signs of fever, your vital signs, heart rate, everything it needs to look at to notify you that you’re getting sick or your child is getting sick.”
The tattoo would also carry one’s financial information. Schneider says: “We carry wallets around and they are so vulnerable. With the tech tattoo you can carry all your information on your skin and when you want your credit card information or your ID, you can pull that up automatically through the system.” he said.
The tattoos are made with “electro conductive ink” that contain various sensors, and in some cases tiny microchips. The makers say they will last for up to a year.
Tim Moynihan of Wired magazine thinks there could be a future with these tech tattoos because 20% of Americans already have tattoos, though not “tech” tattoos.
Lance Ulanoff of Mashable also lauds the “tech tats” because of their potential use to track missing children or check up on soldiers in combat.
Cosmetic company L’Oreal also offers a temporary tattoo that can track UV exposure and alert people if they’re in danger of burning.
