Techtat Can Map Emotions and Monitor Muscle Activity
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.
