The hi-tech tattoo that could replace ALL your passwords: Motorola reveals plans for ink and even pills to identify us
- The Moto X is expected to launch later this year and will be 'more contextually aware than other phones'
- The Biostamp electronic tattoo is made of silicon and contains an electrical circuit, antennae and sensors that bend and move with the wearer's body
- Proteus Digital Health's 'vitamin authentication pill' is powered by acid in the wearer's stomach and creates an 18-bit signal picked up by mobile phone
- Motorola is trialling the technologies as authentication alternatives to non-secure traditional passwords
Motorola has announced it is looking at alternatives to traditional passwords in a bid to make logging into online sites, or accessing mobile phones, more secure.
Among the ideas discussed at the D11 conference in California were electronic tattoos and authentication pills that people swallow.
The tattoos, developed by Massachusetts-based engineering firm MC10, contain flexible electronic circuits that are attached to the wearer's skin using a rubber stamp.
