DuoSkin Smart Tattoo – Tangible interfaces with temporary tattoos

2016-08-16 // tech

A team from the MIT Media Lab has unveiled the Smart DuoSkin Tattoo project, some temporary tattoos for creating tangible interfaces directly on the skin. These DuoSkin Smart Tattoos come in three families: touch interface, display and wireless communication. These connected tattoos combine sheets of conductive metal, LEDs and NFC chips, to control objects, display notifications or communicate with smartphones. The Smart DuoSkin Tattoo project was conducted in collaboration with Microsoft Research.
