Color-Changing Tattoos Can Monitor Health Without A Wearable
DermalAbyss is exploring the possibility of using special inks to monitor medical conditions
There are many liquid compounds that change colors when subjected to different conditions. DermalAbyss—a rather daunting name for a potentially health-preserving technology—makes use of these compounds to provide visual cues to relay changes in the body.
Once applied using tattoo needles, the inks are exposed to the interstitial fluid. This compound exists in between cells and they undergo composition changes depending on many other factors. As a result, the embedded ink is expected to undergo visible changes.
