Internet giants Google are working on a temporary electronic tattoo that would stick to the user’s throat and it would communicate with your smart devices and wearable technology like Google Glass.
This was revealed through a patent filed by Google-owned Motorola Mobility last week, for a system “that comprises an electronic skin tattoo capable of being applied to a throat region of a body.”
The tattoo would communicate with smartphones, gaming devices, tablets and wearable tech like Google Glass via a Bluetooth-style connection and would include a microphone and power source.
The wearers could communicate with their devices via voice commands.
The tattoo could even be used as a lie detector, by include a galvanic skin response detector to detect skin resistance of a user, the 10-page document reads. “It is contemplated that a user that may be nervous or engaging in speaking falsehoods may exhibit different galvanic skin response than a more confident, truth telling individual.”
“Galvanic” is a reference to the way some surfaces, even skin, conduct electricity.
From images attached to the filing, the tattoo size appears to be between a postage stamp and a Band-Aid in size.
In addition to sticking to the throat, the tattoo could also go on a collar or a band around the user’s neck.
