luiy's insight:

‘The movement of living creatures triggers sensations, emotions and communication,’ says Bob de Graaf. Fascinated with autonomous movement, he has created ‘Species of Illumination’; two lights that act and react like autonomous creatures. Wallace responds to changes in light intensity in its environment and brings light to the darkest corners. Darwin searches for sunlight to charge its battery during the daytime, and in the evening wanders around the house, ‘accompanying’ us with its light. The interaction and emotional relationship they bring contribute to our well being. They behave like pets. They are lively lights you can play with.

What could POSSIBLY go wrong?
luiy's insight:

The device in question could also be configured to transmit commands to your phone, also useful in a noisy environment and when one's hands are full. Power for the device could be supplied by a variety of methods, including "solar panel technology, capacitive technology, nanotechnology, or electro-mechanical technology."

The tattoo could also be programmed to respond to a variety of audio sources, including "a user's vocal intonation ... a specific word or words ... a melody ... or a harmonic tone/vibration," and in response to those inputs send a variety of notifications or commands to the user's mobile device.

 

Also, one envisioned embodiment wouldn't be an electronic throat tattoo at all, but instead "a collar or band that would be worn around the throat [of] a user." Even better.

 

Those ideas may be all well and good, but others go downhill from there. The filing also describes the electronic skin tattoo as having a display and a user interface. Needless to say, such a display and UI wouldn't be of much use unless one had a mirror handy to view it. Perhaps the UI text could be displayed in reverse.
