Observers suggest that the nanotechnology could transform “medicine, rehabilitation, and even business and marketing research.”

Science Daily says that the “tattoo consists of a carbon electrode, an adhesive surface that attaches to the skin, and a nanotechnology-based conductive polymer coating that enhances the electrode’s performance. It records a strong, steady signal for hours on end without irritating the skin.”

The nanotat was developed in the Tel Aviv University Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
