Nope, It’s Permanent: Password Tattoo


When is the last time you forgot your password and had to call tech support to have it reset? If that’s never happened then I have two things to tell you. 1. Good for you. 2. You should probably not use the same password for everything. But in the future forgetting passwords will be a thing of the past. f course everything now will be a thing of the past in the future. If you follow me.

Motorola is working on tattoos that will unlock your phone for you when your in the proximity. It’s kind of the same idea as the bracelets you wear so that your car will start or your gun will fire. My car doesn’t even need a key to start. Or course it also has a bad habit of stopping for no apparent reason.

The technology, which aims to remove the need to enter passwords and replace them simply with a phone being close to a user’s body, was one of the suggestions Dennis Woodside, Motorola’s chief executive. The tattoos have been developed by Massachusetts-based engineering firm MC10, and contain flexible electronic circuits that are attached to the wearer’s skin using a rubber stamp.

Motorola is also investigating the Proteus Digital Health pill. The pill creates a unique signal like an ECG trace that can be picked up by devices outside the body and which could be used to verify a user’s identity.

If you’ve ever watched television before you know where this is going. Good news! It’s a suppository.
