With a thickness of 0.8 micrometers at the widest, the thin mesh of silicon actually creases in your skin, even the ones too small to see.
The quantified self goes nanoscale with a stick-on silicon electrode network that could not only change the way we measure health metrics, but could enable a new form of user interface. And the researchers behind it aim to have the device available in the next few weeks through a spinoff company, MC10.
The development takes wearable technology to the extreme, designed as a non-invasive diagnostic sensor that could be used to measure hydration, activity, and even infant temperature. It bonds to the skin, somewhat like a temporary tattoo, flexing and bending in sync with your skin the way you wish a Band-Aid would. How? Researchers at the University of Illinois, Dalian University of Technology in China, and the University of California at San Diego made it really, really small.
With a thickness of 0.8 micrometers at the widest — around one-thousandth the diameter of a human hair — the thin mesh of silicon actually nestles in to the grooves and creases in your skin, even the ones too small to see. Being small helps, but it’s also important that the silicon is laid out in a serpentine pattern and bonded to a soft rubber substrate, allowing the stiff material to flex, a little bit like an accordion.
“Although electronics, over the years, has developed into an extremely sophisticated form of technology, all existing commercial devices in electronics involve silicon wafers as the supporting substrate,” says John Rogers, who led the study published this week in Advanced Materials.
Most people are skeptical to get a “micro-chip” implanted under their skin.
The antichrists among have therefore come up with a better solution to get all of us “electronically tagged”.
The book of revelation has warned us about a “mark’. Not a bulky metal or plastic device.
The newest nano-technology solves the issue. A thin “tattoo” will do the job.
so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.
All bankers will rejoice. Now you can bring with you your ID on your hand or forehead. No need to carry a ATM-card.
The mobile phone companies will rejoice. It will soon be possible to have a mobile phone tattoo, that can not be stolen by thief’s.
You will simply “have to have this”.
All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.
With this “tattoo”, there is no need to bring cash for payment as you do shopping at the Wall Mart. If fact, soon cash will not do. You will not be permitted to buy or sell without the “tattoo”.
Do you understand, what I am trying to tell you?
