New Tech Tattoos Monitor Your Health

A brand  new and unique technology is making its way into the wearable market, with Chaotic Moon Studios' 'Tech Tats' offering users the ability to submit health information to their doctor by way of temporary tattoos used to collect biometric data.

Wearable tech has sold itself on being able to collect data regarding users' health and fitness levels, but Chaotic Moon Studios hopes to swoop in by offering an affordable and more health-centric alternative for those who aren't necessarily concerned by the other features offered by the likes of Fitbit. Tech Tats are stuck onto the user's skin using electric paint, and while they can be removed, its creators seemingly intend for its users to wear them more often than not given the Tats' other uses, namely geolocation tracking and the ability to store credit card information.
According to RT News the creative technologist behind Tech Tats, Eric Schneider, claimed that the Tats would are intended to be applied "once a year to collect medical data and avoid health check ups in the clinic," with this information then being sent to your doctor in place of you having to book an appointment. Schneider didn't confirm how long the Tat would remain on the wearer's skin after it had been applied.
