Our Wearable Tech Future

Wed Nov 5, 2014, 7:00 PM
Cyborg by ltluan











What if you could wear your computer or smartphone as a neck tattoo someday?






Motorola has patented the concept of an "electronic skin tattoo" for your throat, equipped with an "embedded microphone" and "a transceiver for enabling wireless communication."  This futuristic tattoo would help you communicate with smartphones, personal computers or other "mobile communication devices."







Check out the complete patent application at this link:



Electronic tattoo, which can be applied to a region of the body via an adhesive, is further comprised of a controller, a personal area network (PAN) transceiver, audio circuitry, a power supply, and a signal processor… Controller of electronic tattoo can be configured to execute programs or instructions to enable communicative coupling of the electronic tattoo to external electronic devices such as a smartphone, a gaming device, a tablet computer, a wearable computer, for example.”



The application also hinted at the lie–detecting possibilities of this tattoo, as it could potentially include a “galvanic skin response detector” that could measure and reveal your body’s physical reactions.



The Atlantic senior editor Alexis Madrigal explored the implications of such a device:



The User could have a screen on his throat that turns orange when he starts sweating because he’s a liar. Everything will be clear to his business associates and loved ones, from the timber of his voice to the content of his character. Who would not want to live in this world?”



Melville House’s Dustin Kurtz wrote about the implication of this truth–telling tech for writers:



Our most effective social lubricant, the falsehood, would become so much grit in the wheels. Only psychopaths could be politicians. What relationship could survive? But of course the most adversely affected, as with all big inventions, would be the poor novelists.”







What do you think? Would the convenience of a wearable computer outweigh the potential privacy issues of this theoretical device?






The problem with every type of spy equipment is that those it is being used to spy upon must take measures to defend against the device. It is always safer to assume every spy is using it and take appropriate measures, whether or not there in any real proof. This is why journalists and doctors and human rights monitors have such a problem with CIA and others using their professions as covers. To be safe, the bad guys must assume everyone is CIA and therefore torture everyone indiscriminately. So now, regular journalists are going to get their throats slit because they might have an e–skin tattoo?



As for skin discoloration as yet another “lie detector” device. Psycho liar killers are sociopaths who do not sweat or experience a raise in blood pressure when lying. They therefore fool lie detector machines easily. Normal people sometimes get “caught” when they’re not even lying, just because the accusation is so upsetting to their system.


If we become a society in which we are not even allowed the occasional “white lie” to ease social situations, we’re doomed to become self–censoring automatons scared to initiate anything outside the lines that might be considered deceptive or rebellious. Since we often have to lie to secure a better job, which we then thrive in or lose according to our abilities finally being allowed to be tested, a world without minor deceptions means a society with no promotions, no personal growth, anti–innovation and risk–taking. So where you’re born is where you stay. The corporate controllers’ paranoid need to police our lives outside of work hours (the reason for lie detectors) thus embeds the spirit of the caste system in our democracy. It’s a cancer we don’t need.









Your Thoughts






  1. Do you think it would possible in this uber-“recorded” society for you to delete all records of yourself so you could go completely “off the grid?”

This piece started out just as me needing a simple way to have my smartphone accessible at events without having to dig through pockets full of junk to get to it- however, I'll be starting to turn out a few of these sized for regular iphones/smartphones (mine's an Evo 4g, so it's a bit bigger than standard) for sale at events and as special commissions- so if you're interested in purchasing such a thing, just drop me a line!

A concept for an upcoming illustration, if I ever have time to actually complete it.

Obviously not meant to be a *real* ninja, in the historically accurate sense of the word, just your popculture fantasy ninja :]

Here's the full version of the character. Original character, not from League.

Lancer Girl PK Zeronis by ZeronisViolette Mekanizer by Zeronis

UPDATE:::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Thanks for the comments! but this is one of the I don't give a too much fuck about practicality and realism. It's a stylized character from a fantasy video game sort of world. Over thinking tend to make designs super boring without attitude and flavor. Heels Heels Heels! if you don't like heels, please stop trying to explain how impractical it is because that's never the point of the art. Like I said, this is a form of art and design that is not suppose to exists in real world or possible in real world because it's a fantasy video game world. Nobody is bothered by how oversized that weapon is and yet their bothered by Heels!?
If you wanna become a professional artist or aspire to reach a high skill level of art and want to be able to create design and stylized art freely, then I advise you to STOP OVER THINKING about art.

So this is my take on Hengsha from DXHR. At first I planned to do some kind of mines, but after putting various building shapes it somehow turned this way. Anyway, hope you like it.

A revamp from the old drawing of my first robot TX-31

"However you see fit, I will carry out your order and eliminate all who threaten your existence. Or those you point me towards, it matters not."
TX-31 was a Hunter-Killer assassin droid and Jedi-Hunter constructed by the Sovereign Sith Lord, Darth Corrus. Years prior to his defection, Corrus built the machine, initially in the desire to create a sentient artificial construct. By the time he fell into the dark side, Corrus rebuilt the droid into a fearsome Hunter-Killer, and upgraded the assassin robot into a Jedi-Hunter as the Sovereignty War broke out. 

After the last battle of the war, TX-31 made his way to the Wookie planet of Kashyyyk, where the droid spent some time in self-imposed exile and destroying any creature and Wookie warrior that dared approach him in the Shadowlands of the forest floor, earning an infamous reputation of something dangerous and sinister. The Jedi Watchman Anwyn Virden found the droid and turned TX to her side after a long vicious battle. Now working for the New Republic, TX-31 was ready to serve his new master and destroy the mockery of the Sovereignty he served that was the Resurgence.

Characteristics

"I have been built with the intent of achieving sentience. During the war, I was rebuilt to satisfy the needs of destroying those who needed destroying. Times change, I suppose."
TX-31's personality programming gave the droid a cool, calculating feel, as he always seemed to be observing and thinking ahead. His vocal patterns was polite and calmly modulated, furthering the sense of the droid's calmness and confidence it had in its abilities. He never underestimated his targets, even the most foolish and ill-equipped target would be given a carefully constructed plan as how to be eliminated. The droid had a dry sense of humor underneath, most likely due to the fact that Corrus programmed him to be more sentient and independent. Despite all of his free will programming, TX remained steadfast and loyal to his masters, mostly towards his first master and creator.

I wanted to draw Babe the Blue Ox again. I know it sounds silly, but even at my age I still like the idea of having imaginary friends. It's fun to hang out with them.

Babe shows me just how strong he is and gives me a close-up of those mighty biceps of his. Don't worry, he's not vain or anything. Still, though, his cannons are quite impressive at this size.

A soldier design I whipped up for my Ranger project a few days ago. A few people have been bugging me about battle ponchos, so here you have it.

The overcoat provides ballistic protection to the soldier by hardening on impact. It's looser fit compared to tightly worn soft armors mean it can afford to flex more during impact, making it more durable. This approach to protection leaves the soldier flexible in movement rather than restricted by hard plating.
Under the coat is a light muscle suit which gives the solder even more flexibility and protection.
Equipment that is needed quickly is held in pouches outside the coat, while additional gear and restocks are under the coat.
Advanced versions of this Cloak armor may utilize adaptive camouflage systems. The combination of illusion from patterns and silhouette are quite effective.
The weapon shown is a light weight machine gun that fires high velocity ammunition. This balance of mobility, range, and volume fire capability complement the soldiers flexibility in multiple environments.

Some robotic soldiers based off current DARPA stuff. This went out of control and took way longer than I would have liked. The results aren't satisfactory either.

Things always look promising in the thumbnail stage.

George Washington was known for many things...Being a great general, Having wooden dentures (Okay they weren't really wooden, Cutting down the cherry tree, and being nicknamed the Destroyer of Villages. But what many don't know is he was an avid Zombie Hunter, this is a picture of one of his many adventures out into the night to give some Liberty and Justice to all.
