VivaLnk has launched Digital Tattoo, which is “the world’s first commercial eSkin™ electronics product.” It is an “adhesive Digital Tattoo” that can unlock the Motorola Moto X. Currently, this is the only device it can unlock, but the company promises that more devices will follow in the future.
VivaLnk, Inc., a Silicon Valley technology company has announced the world’s first commercial eSkin™ electronics product, Digital Tattoo, developed with Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) group. ATAP is a small, agile skunkworks team within Google. The nickel sized, paper thin adhesive Digital Tattoo is worn on the wrist. Vivalnk’s Digital Tattoo works on Motorola’s Moto X smartphone and the VivaLnk team is looking to expand to other devices and future versions of Android. When worn by the smartphone user, Digital Tattoo provides electronic authentication to unlock the phone for use and make logging into your device fast, easy and secure. They last for 5 days and work anywhere, anytime.
VivaLnk (pronounced: Veeva-Link) has developed eSkin™ technology where electronics, in an ultra-thin and flexible material, communicate with a user’s smartphone wirelessly. Digital Tattoo is a disposable product and can be worn for approximately 5 days at a time and then replaced with another Digital Tattoo. VivaLnk’s Program Manager, Brandon Barbello, said the Company has begun selling Digital Tattoo ten-packs through its website, www.vivalnk.com, for $9.99.
After setting up Moto X, you will separately activate a Digital Tattoo. Simply tap the back of Moto X to your Digital Tattoo and follow the onscreen instructions. For the first activation, you will be prompted to re-enter your existing PIN and to set a master PIN. For the remaining activations of the same tattoo you pair the tattoo and tap to activate.
Digital Tattoo is a simple application of eSkin™ technology, but it is the first commercialized product of its kind. VivaLnk anticipates other products utilizing eSkin™ technology in health care, security, entertainment, and numerous other fields.
