Tattoos are the great source of entertainment as people made different styles on their body to represent the style and they are trendy but what if tattoos display the health condition?
Have you ever thought this? If no, then you have to wait for the time as scientists are working on this concept and developing the ink that displays the health condition of the person.
The technology is growing rapidly as the researchers from the MIT and Harvard Medical School are working to adjust the tattoo ink in such a way that displays the health of the person and could revolutionize the way we connect.
The idea is simple
- The idea of the researchers is simple as they are developing the three different types of ink that display the body health depending upon the glucose level, sodium or pH in your body.
- The health of the person depends on the color of a tattoo as they made the tattoo to person body in such a way that pH sensor will display the color purple and pink, the glucose sensor will display the color between blue and brown where sodium will display higher intensity.
- The idea of the tattoo is that whenever person made this tattoo on the body, it will build in such a way that displays the metabolic process of the person and singular tattoo will display all the elements.
The progress of researchers:
- The researchers are working in the modern technology for last seven years to build the electric cosmetics that work as beauty and display the health such as to build the smart fake eyelashes, conductive makeup.
- The fact is that these technologies will interact the world with your beauty but this time they are working to develop the ink that works with the internal body and displays the internal biological process with an external interface as researchers want to go deep this time.
- The researchers have already tested this kind of ink on a pig skin to find the outcomes of an internal body as they added we want to predict this ink on many other animals to make sure the concept will lie in the modern world.
- They added that overhead of this kind of ink may be an allergy that becomes a barrier in displaying the results on the above skin but we are working to make sure indicators will remain accurate and displays the promising results.
- The researchers are pretty sure that one day this kind of tattoo is available on the market that displays the internal health of the body – just think, what if you don’t need to figure out glucose level without testing with your finger?
- The researcher has no idea when this idea becomes the real product for the people but tattoo ink opens up thinking about real-time health monitoring and the idea of the project is known as ‘DermalAbyss’ to change the color of tattoo according to the requirement.
- A few months earlier, the idea of hearing tattoo is already introduced in the market.
