Electronic Skin Tattoo with RFID Technology to Facilitate Monitoring



This device contains a RFID chip and will be able to transfer information wirelessly to various networks. To get people interested and excited by the electronic skin tattoo, news articles describe its usefulness in health monitoring and…um…video games. What is however not advertised is how easily this device could be used to track, spy and monitor people.

Electronic Skin Tattoo with RFID Technology to Facilitate Monitoring

Electronic skin tattoo has medical, gaming, spy uses

A hair-thin electronic patch that adheres to the skin like a temporary tattoo could transform medical sensing, computer gamingand even spy operations, according to a US study published Thursday.

The micro-electronics technology, called an epidermal electronic system (EES), was developed by an international team of researchers from the United States, China and Singapore, and is described in the journal Science.

“It’s a technology that blurs the distinction between electronics and biology,” said co-author John Rogers, a professor in materials science and engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

“Our goal was to develop an electronic technology that could integrate with the skin in a way that is mechanically and physiologically invisible to the user.”

The patch could be used instead of bulky electrodes to monitor brain, heart and muscle tissue activity and when placed on the throat it allowed users to operate a voice-activated video game with better than 90 percent accuracy.

“This type of device might provide utility for those who suffer from certain diseases of the larynx,” said Rogers. “It could also form the basis of a sub-vocal communication capability, suitable for covert or other uses.”

The wireless device is nearly weightless and requires so little power it can fuel itself with miniature solar collectors or by picking up stray or transmitted electromagnetic radiation, the study said.

Less than 50-microns thick — slightly thinner than a human hair — the devices are able to adhere to the skin without glue or sticky material.

“Forces called van der Waals interactions dominate the adhesion at the molecular level, so the electronic tattoos adhere to the skin without any glues and stay in place for hours,” said the study.

Northwestern University engineer Yonggang Huang said the patch was “as soft as the human skin.”

Rogers and Huang have been working together on the technology for the past six years. They have already designed flexible electronics for hemispherical camera sensors and are now focused on adding battery power and other energy options.

The devices might find future uses in patients with sleep apnea, babies who need neonatal care and for making electronic bandages to help skin heal from wounds and burns.

yeah it's probably not the exact mark but the technology probably already exists that will be used…i believe they are years ahead of this tech they are telling us about…years but they don't want to shake people awake…just break it to them slowly, get people used to the idea…what a wicked world we live in….the heart of man is so dark…I love seeing all these comments about people placing their hope in Christ and pray you all have a personal relationship with the one who is called faithful and true. We all really need to be praying for those that don't know christ…we need to look up and focus on our blessed hope but there is still work to do while we are here!!! I've accepted the fact that I might not get married, or have kids or grow old in this world because of all the events that are coming together just as the word of God said it would. I was a doubter, a scoffer, living in my flesh but Jesus reached so far out to me and saved me despite all that I said about him and how I ridiculed him. God is more than our… Read more »

Revelation 13:17-18 (English Standard Version) Only The Truth Open UR Eyes Sheeple!!!

17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666


The mark of the beast is more then a mark it's also those who worship the anti-christ.So for one to have the Mark of the Beast one must by their own will worship the beats and take the mark.

Anyone who does this will therefore be beyond the chance of being redeemed … Lost without hope .

revelation ch 13 v 16 to 18 and he forces all to recieve a mark on their arm or forehead and that no one can buy nor sell lest they have the mark


Very informative article, VC! I appreciate that because I have been hearing a lot about this so called RFID chip. I know a lot of people are afraid and are fearful and saying that this "technological advance", among other things, is making them afraid but I just want to say that there's nothing in this world to be fearful of. If you belong to Jesus Christ, and He is your Lord and Savior, then there is nothing to be fearful of. The truth of the Lord God Jehovah – His Word – tells us in the book of 2Timothy Chapter 1v.7 that the Lord has not given us a spirit of fear; but of POWER, and of LOVE, and of a SOUND MIND. If you confess with your mouth that the Lord Jesus Christ is indeed the Son of the Most High God, and believe with your whole heart that He is, then as it says in the book of Isaiah Chapter 54 v.17 (and it is true): NO weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and EVERY tongue that shall rise against you in judgment shalt the Lord condemn. This is the heritage of the servant(s) of the… Read more »


When I saw this all I could think was the "Mark of the Beast."


does this remind anyone else of bible prophesy?



History is cyclical, and when it comes to Biblical prophecies, often there are several events which will fit, meaning that a prophecy may have been fulfilled partially but has yet to be fulfilled completely. For example, the prophecies about the fate of Jerusalem have been partially fulfilled, but we have yet to see Jerusalem destroyed for good.


Also, I am very greatful to at least have the inside story, it just goes to show, it is written, and will be, how Awesome our God is that He allows these things to happen even though He knows he outcome, He wants to give us all the chance to be with Him and to reap rewards, I hope the Mark is not a temporary tattoo, that would be confusing, and much easier to be forced upon us, I believe the tattoo will be permanent and you either accept the Mark or refuse, I am afraid of what my life will be like when I refuse, but I know He will be with me to the very end. AMEN

I posted this link in an earlier article's comment section, but this time its on topic and maybe a lot of you havent seen it:

Microchips for children, making it a lot more easy for high-tech pedophiles to track down and kidnap kids. Err…. I mean its for their safety…




I bet they hid a 666 somewhere in there 😉


There s not much time left people! I have been avidly watching and reading since the 1980's and

am still amazed at how rapidly each year brings about more things that will make it sooo very easy

to issue in the antichrist and his mark. This tattoo thing (not to mention the implantable chips for animals and "your kids" so if lost, they can be tracked) show those with an eye and ear attuned to God let us know how close we are to the end of this age. They always try and use "medicine" and the

health and well-being of an individual into play in order to persuade the people to accept more and more technological advances. As a physician for the past 25 years, I have no problem monitoring a person the "old" ways than to subject them to some "patch" whose true purpose is other than what is being disclosed. Consider the motives behind the technological "gift"

i think this is one of the greatest ideas think about it makes life a lot easier to access your house, phone, car, your credit cards, to clocking in or just use the traditional way with the job, as long as it can stay for personal this would be the best so we would first have to ban the government for regulating or even having a word on it, because thats when corruption comes i thought about the implant but what if they decide to use their evil you're going to have to cut your self and with the tattoo just scratch it off, and the applications with this are so useful, nfc if youre close to a friend it notifies your phone maybe i shouldve kept that to myself because it hasnt been made yet, or for cars lets say you have a family your wife and 2 children 1 cant drive now you can set up on your phone who is able to drive (fuck the government they have nothing to do with the chip) and who has access to your vehicle so while all can access one cant drive unless there is an emergency which would let… Read more »


why do these scientist have brains if their too scared to use them???


This is amazing. As any true technological advancement takes form, the religious are always the first to deem it satanic/evil/witchcraft. All of the people claiming this to be terrible: I challenge you to come up with one way in which this technology can be used for directly malicious purposes. I'm sure you are all aware of the very limited range that RFID chips have…..oh…you probably aren't since you are claiming ridiculous things.


Also. This is not permanent. It's like a temporary tattoo. Did any of you fear mongering drones even read this?


it is like a temporary tattoo, we all can read, they have created a temporary one, no one says it will be the form they will end up using, if it was only going to use temporary, the gov couldn’t spy on our every move, so, you can bet, it will be a permanent tattoo when all is said and done, make fun all you want, nothing you say will change the minds of those who stand against it for religious reasons, and some day, you could regret having that tattoo, some day when your doctor knows things aobut you that you wouldn’t have told him, it sounds new and shiny, but some of us saw this coming a long time ago, and we know how it ends


Are the RFID chip and the mark of the beast (Rev 13) the same, if so, when your life is over you can never go to heaven when you die. It does not matter what life you have lived, born again Christian, very religious, or just living an ordinary life, the RFID chip will cost you your eternal life, The Bible says so.Join the discussion


I’m aware of the RFID chips, you mean the ones that caused cancer to form AROUND the chip? as if the body was fighting it off? is that the chip youre talking about? the one that caused some people a shock when it was activated or a burn, all set, you can get in line though – have at it

Sorry typos on beast 🙂

Correct one must also worship the beast … Typo 🙂

mark of the beast much? haha

Concerning the 666 issue…has anyone heard Walid Shoebat's thoughts? He claims that the 3 Greek letters that make up the "666" are also Arabic words. In short, he claims when they are read together they say a "badge of servitude (which in Muslim countries the soldiers wear on the right arm and forehead) with the words In the Name of Allah". Maybe another guess to consider? Here is a link.


People, you are all so naive. The very money that you use on a daily basis has the all-seeing eye on it. If it is associated with satan as most of you believe, then you have already accepted satan. Not to mention everything else that you use.

Stephen King

Yes we all live and operate in satans system but it is when we have to make the decision to accept the mark in order to continue to operate within his system, this would be the life and death decision we will have to make
