Blood-Powered Digital Tattoos Are Some Futuristic Freakiness

For anyone who has ever been freaked out by the idea of getting a tattoo, here’s a new invention that will really make you squirm: the Digital Tattoo, an implant which sits beneath a layer of your skin and shows up as a tattoo-like electronic interface. Here’s where things get really weird—this gadget can work as a phone or computer. So, yes, you could literally press a button on your skin and answer a call. Or, explains Geekologie, it can just look like a “traditional tattoo by downloading a picture of a unicorn from the internet.” Whaaaa??? What’s more is that it is powered by your very own blood. That can’t be good for you.

Is this for real? It seems like something out of a science-fiction movie, and we can’t quite wrap our heads around it. [Gizmodo via Geekologie]
