Un­lock your Moto X with your tat­too

OpenSource For You - - FOSS BYTES -

Mo­torola is im­ple­ment­ing an al­ter­na­tive se­cu­rity sys­tem for Moto X. It is frus­trat­ing to re­mem­ber dif­fi­cult pass­words while sim­pler pass­words are easy to crack. To counter this, Vi­vaLnk has launched dig­i­tal tat­toos. This tat­too will au­to­mat­i­cally un­lock the Moto X when ap­plied to the skin.

This tech­nol­ogy is based on Near Field Com­mu­ni­ca­tion to con­nect with smart­phones and au­then­ti­cate ac­cess. Mo­torola is work­ing on op­ti­mis­ing dig­i­tal tat­toos with Google’s Ad­vance Tech­nol­ogy and Projects.

The pric­ing is on the higher side but this is a great ini­tia­tive in wear­able tech­nol­ogy. De­vel­op­ing user friendly al­ter­na­tives to the pass­word and PIN num­ber has been a ma­jor fo­cus of tech com­pa­nies. Mo­torola had talked about this in the in­tro­duc­tory ses­sion of the D11 con­fer­ence at Cal­i­for­nia this May, when it dis­cussed the idea of pass­words in pills or tat­toos. The idea may seem like a gim­mick, but you never know when it will be­come com­monly used. Vi­vaLnk is work­ing on mak­ing this tech­nol­ogy com­pat­i­ble with other smart­phones too. It is con­sid­er­ing en­ter­ing the do­main of cre­at­ing tat­toos of dif­fer­ent types and de­signs.
