Biometrics: Moving Far Beyond Fingerprints
Body tattoos and biometrics
MC10 is reshaping the health care industry with its electronic skin patches designed to monitor patient vitals, such as heart rate, in real time, to improve human health, according to Levine. The patches, which are thinner than human hair, can bend, stretch and twist naturally with our bodies. In addition, MC10 announced a recent partnership with custom products designer PCH to expand its application beyond the medical field. Other areas being explored include ticketed events, cashless payments and security, where the electronic tattoo could include our login credentials. “MC10’s WiSP technology could very well turn us into living, breathing passwords soon,” he says.
