TAT­TOO YOUR WAY TO BET­TER HEALTH

Sunday Herald Sun - Body and Soul - - FRONT PAGE -

Fit­ness track­ers eat your heart out. A Texas-based de­vel­oper is work­ing on a new piece of wear­able tech – a tem­po­rary tat­too that will do far more than keep track of your fit­ness.

““This is really go­ing be­yond what the fit­ness tracker is. Rather than go­ing to the doc­tor, this tat­too can be some­thing you put on your body once a year and it mon­i­tors ev­ery­thing you’d do in a phys­i­cal and sends that to your doc­tor,” Eric Sch­nei­der, cre­ative tech­nol­o­gist at Chaotic Moon, says.

Tech Tats use sen­sors and semiper­ma­nent con­duc­tive paint for a power source, and will even­tu­ally be able to track your heart rate, vi­tal signs and tem­per­a­ture.
