Flash Tattoo Watch 02

The realization of Uglies technology continues!

First, engineers at the University of Washington have developed an eyescreen-like contact lens:

Thanks to Erin-la for this catch!

In other news, howzabout some blood-powered flash tattoos?

Thanks to Jade Lennox and Temvald for kicking this to me!

This subcutaneous digital display uses the sugar in your blood and turns it into the electricity it needs to run. (And it’s Bluetooth compatible.) The article is a bit unclear about what stage this gadget’s at. The photo caption says the it’s being demonstrated, but the article says, “just a concept.” Well, “concept cars” are prototypes . . .

Anyway, it’s sort of like the flash tattoos in Uglies, because it monitors your bio-signs. Not your heartbeat in this case, but your blood chemistry. Seems to me that if it could control its own energy use, it would be great for diabetics.

If you read the articles for both these devices, they both mention cell phone applications. Like, dude, that is so 1997.

  18. man. i still have so very much homework to do and it’s 10:30 here. i’m gonna be up till like 1 a.m. grrrrrr… which means i’ll be cranky and tired tomorrow. this bites. so much to do, so little time to do it in. well i shouldn’t be on here right now cuz i’m already not gonna get much sleep so i guess i better go. laters.

  19. Cool! Everything is be coming reality as how Mr Westerfeld has written it be! Seriously… perhaps he could consider being one of those people who predict the future of humans since what he says is just so accurate!

  20. well thanks for welcomeing me
    but im not as random as some of you
    and yes i’ve read his books

  21. i have a question
    were do you all live?
    like in what country?
    The U.S.?
    if you do, like were?
    LA? Fargo?
    Orlando?

  22. I live in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois. In the USA.
    Hearts:
    & hearts ; (without the spaces)
    Spades (I think):
    & spades ; (without the spaces)

  23. so guess what…. my aunt won Mamma Mia tickets for me for tonight but my parents are outta town so they can’t take me. and so i might not get to go. that will be $143 going to waste. how sad is that. i might still get to go though if my friend can convince her mom to take us. hopefully. and if all else fails my aunt said she might take me. but she doesn’t really wanna cuz she doesn’t like the opera. ughh…. this is so hard.

  24. don’t you think those contacts would be irritating under your eye lid with the chip and stuff… i would still get it! They should put color and designs and OOHHHH! what about a light up flashing pattern?!?!?!?!?!? That would be fausome. I LUV that word.

  25. Hope ya get to go Kay-wa. It sounds like fun. I live in Cali, but not tellin where exactly cuz then I’d get my computer oh so taken away, and that would seriously impair my writing needs. asypatheticmind, where do you live? Just curious.

  26. my aunt ended up taking me and it was AMAZING!! i love, love, loved it! the next brodway show coming is Rent! i wanna see it so very bad! can you tell i’ve got a thing for brodway. hehe. that’s 2 brodway musicals in the last month. you gotta love free tickets!
