Mobile Technology Merged with Body Art



Frog Design gave free reign to its imagination and came up with Datoos (DNA tatoos) as a futuristic answer.

"The concept of the Dattoo arose in response to current trends towards increasing connectivity and technology as self-expression. To realize a state of constant, seamless connectivity and computability required the convergence of technology and self. The body would need to literally become the interface. Computers and communication devices require physical space, surfaces, and energy. The idea of DNA tattoos (Dattoos) is to use the body itself as hardware and interaction platform, through the use of minimally-invasive, recyclable materials."

This may sound rather outlandish, but will we see body-technologies emerge sometime in the future?After all, the description of a mobile phone would have sounded implausible in the not-too-distant past.
