By now, we've all grown pretty accustomed to the idea of wearable tech devices, like the Apple Watch and Google Glass. Not that we actually own any of them, but still, *theoretically* their function is understandable. But the newest wave of wearables is borderline cyborg status.
As TechCrunch reports, Austin-based tech company Chaotic Moon is engineering a "smart" stick-on gadget: Tech Tats, they're called. They're applied just like the temporary tattoos of your childhood—stick on and wash off—except these high-tech tats can monitor vital signs, track GPS location, even hold credit card information.
Imagine how much easier festivals would be if you could find your friends, make sure you're hydrated, and it's a stick-on tattoo, soooo…. totally appropriate (albeit a bit robotic).
