Tattoo video display - Technology concept
So you always seem to forget to bring your pda or smartphone? No problem. Just build the display and electronics into smart nanobots that flow throughout your body, and you'll never leave it behind. When it's time to watch that latest movie, you give them the command, and they all assemble into the perfect display device in your skin. One thing's for sure... when you use this display, you won't be typing with two thumbs!
Here's Engadget's own clever take on the technology ...
"Note to Hart and Huntington tattoo shop: you guys so need to hook up with Gina Miller, a designer and animator who is looking to make your business totally obsolete. Obviously seeing a bright future in implanted devices, Seattle-based Miller, with help from nanotech author Robert A. Freitas Jr., has finished her concept-animation project that envisions a dermal display system consisting of billions of nanobots that can self-assemble and emit photons to form text and graphics directly on the skin. While user-changeable tattoos are the most obvious implementation of this technology, Freitas proposes the more “practical” deployment of using pixelbots to display info gathered from the army of healthbots that will one day run amok in our bloodstreams. The futuristic system also promises to be touch sensitive, allowing you to send a message back to your nano-friends telling them to get the hell out of your prostate."
