Biostamp medical tattoo

MC10 is a company whose mission is to make electronics conform to the human body by fashioning them into ultra-thin, flexible form. These devices bend, stretch and twist with the contours of the body. One example is the biostamp medical tattoo.

MC10 CEO David Icke told a 2012 TedMed Conference in Washington that the device can monitor disease, detect bodily changes or simply keep tabs on a patient's vital signs. The device is still in the research phase, but Icke hopes it can one day be used to detect brain trauma and irregular heartbeats.
