Skintillates is a wearable technology that mimics tattoos—the oldest and most commonly used on-skin displays in human culture. This technology is capable of providing many forms of sensing and display, and it interfaces with other electronic devices. Just like traditional temporary tattoos often worn by children and adults, Skintillates flex naturally with the user's skin. Our simple fabrication technique enables users to freely design and print with a full range of colors to create customized designs for on-skin sensing and display applications.
