Zak Holdsworth, a Silicon Valley digital entrepreneur, and Kiwi is helping bring such technology to market.

He reckons that heart patients will be sporting the "tattoos" on their arms within five years, and in 10 years of time people could be sporting the technology inside their hearts.

MC10 is the Boston-based technology company behind the tattoos and is now investigating the potential of microchips that are being inserted via catheter on to the heart's inner lining from where a signal will be sent to the patient's phone.
