Tattoos PCBs

Wearable technology is at its peak as consumers are looking at ways to stay connected at all times. This thirst has taken a new twist, as some out-of-the-box thinkers are exploring ways to tattoo yourself with technology. Yes, you heard it right. Tattooed PCBs allows you to light up your body and do so much more. Circuit boards in wearable technology play a significant role. Their dimensions and flexibility allow for innovation in the wearable segment.


How Does It Work?

Circuit board tattoos are created using electric paint and an extremely thin circuit board. The tattoo can be created to keep the circuitry (electric paint) visible or concealed depending on the user. These tattoos can also be controlled by an application in a smartphone.

Other Uses of Tattooed PCBs :

Although technology infused tattoos sound like a lot of fun, the medical industry can also benefit from this invention. A patient need not be confined when connected to medical equipment. He/ she can move around freely while being closely monitored with the help of PCB tattoos. All information about a patient can be stored and monitored with the help of PCB tattoos.

In the healthcare industry, users can track their blood pressure, heart rate, stress levels, and much more. With time, tattooed PCBs could replace smart watches that act as pedometers, calorie counters, etc. Another possible benefit is being able to keep track of your child especially in crowded situations. The same can be adopted by the military to keep a close watch on the location of its soldiers.

The possibilities of using these products and the advantages offered are endless. This invention can help further the technological evolution that mankind is currently undergoing. PCB tattoos take ‘wireless’ to a whole new level.
