Digital Tattoo Gets Under Your Skin to Monitor Blood levels

Maybe tattoos aren’t just for Harley riders or rebellious teens after all. In a few years, diabetics might get inked up with digital tats that communicate with an iPhone to monitor their blood.

Instead of the dye used for tribal arm bands and Chinese characters, these tattoos will contain nanosensors that read the wearer’s blood levels of sodium, glucose and even alcohol with the help of an iPhone 4 camera.

Dr. Heather Clark, associate professor of pharmaceutical sciences at Northeastern University, is leading the research on the subdermal sensors. She said she was reminded of the benefits of real-time, wearable health monitoring when she entered a marathon in Vermont: If they become mass-produced and affordable for the consumer market, wireless devices worn on the body could tell you exactly what medication you need whenever you need it.

“I had no idea how much to drink, or when,” said Clark, reflecting on her marathon run. “Or if I should have Gatorade instead.”

Organ hunter? damned.gif

Ghost hunter? hmm.gif Makes you think, don't it? chuckle.gif

We have a couple of organ hunters around this town, they're usually drunk and dressed like sluts rofl.gif No way Steve Jobs is getting any of my hard earned cash, I'm not a big fan of the hardware. I stay as far away from my cell phone as I can. I don't need anything that's more invasive than a cell phone already is.

I'm starting to sound like a religious nut.

I am not your rolling wheels, I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night
