New High Tech Tattoo can Collect Health and Other Biometric Data from Your Body

Chaotic Moon, a software development firm based in Austin, Texas, is working on a high-tech tattoo that can collect health and other biometric data from your body.

According to Chaotic Moon's CEO Ben Lamm, the tattoo will be able to collect and upload health and informational data, much like Jawbone or the Apple Watch and send it to medical staff.

"This is the new wearable. The future of wearables is biowearables. This is not something that can be easily removed like a Fitbit. It can be underneath a flack jacket, directly on the skin to be collecting this data and being reported back," Lamm said.

The tattoo is temporary and washes off much like a temporary fashion tattoo. The wearable will have the ability to monitor body temperature. It will detect if someone is stressed based on sweat, heart rate and hydration level. Chaotic Moon is best known for fire-breathing drones and bitcoin earning fitness trackers, but Lamm said the current project was one of the most exciting his company has ever worked on.

"We get to do a lot of cool stuff at Chaotic Moon but with this we think there's military applications for it, health applications for it and there are all kinds of opportunities around it," Lamm added.

The tattoos can be used for location-tracking during concerts or for keeping track of your kid at an amusement park. Some of the attraction for military use could include detection of poison in the air and pathogens in a soldier's body.
