tattoos have been a fashion statement, but in future tattoos can me much more
than that. Google owned Motorola Mobility has recently filed a patent in USPTO for
an electronic neck tattoo that can serve as a lie detector. The tattoo can be pasted
on the neck or worn on collar or on a band around the user’s neck. The patent
application highlights that “the electronic skin tattoo can include a galvanic
skin response detector to detect skin resistance of a user; it is contemplated that a user may be nervous or engaging in speaking
falsehoods may exhibit different galvanic skin response than a more confident,
truth telling individual.”
The tattoo can
mainly serve as supplementary microphone and can be paired with various
electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets etc.This means that the user can
easilycommunicate through mobile phone by a voice command without having to
press any button. The tattoo can run on rechargeable batteries or can usesolar
panel technology, capacitive technology, nanotechnology or electro-mechanical
technology as explained in the patent application.

The patent which
is titled "Coupling an Electronic Skin Tattoo to a Mobile Communication
Device” is primarily meant for nullifying the background noise when a caller
speaks from a crowded surrounding. The tattoo worn on the neck can improve the
voice quality by making the caller more audible to the person on the other end
of the call through a noise-cancelling system.
the tattoo could also be worn by animals, although we are clueless as to how it
could help an animal. But for now we are sure that this new wearable technology
will make one think before lying.
