Mark of the Beast Finally Here!

Now we just need to schedule an Anti-Christ and we’re all set… I’m comin’ home baby Jesus!

From io9:

Breakthrough: Electronic circuits that are integrated with your skin

A team of engineers today announced a discovery that could change the world of electronics forever. Called an “epidermal electronic system” (EES), it’s basically an electronic circuit mounted on your skin, designed to stretch, flex, and twist — and to take input from the movements of your body.

EES is a leap forward for wearable technologies, and has potential applications ranging from medical diagnostics to video game control and accelerated wound-healing. Engineers John Rogers and Todd Coleman, who worked on the discovery, tell io9 it’s a huge step towards erasing the divide that separates machine and human.

Also they will be beneficial for Satan to track your every move!

So what can an EES really do for us? The short answer is: a lot. In the paper describing their new technology, published in this week’s issue of Science, the researchers illustrated the adaptability of their concept by demonstrating functionality in a wide array of electronic components, including biometric sensors, LEDs, transistors, radio frequency capacitors, wireless antennas, and even conductive coils and solar cells for power.

Breakthrough: Electronic circuits that are integrated with your skinWe asked Rogers what he thought were the most promising applications for the new technology. He said medicine was the most compelling:

Our paper demonstrates our ability to monitor ECG (as a monitor of heart disease and metabolism), EMG (as a measure of, among other things, gait during walking) and EEG (as a measure of cognitive state and awareness).

We have also shown that these same devices can stimulate muscle tissue to induce contractions. When combined with sensing/monitoring, such modes of use could be valuable in physical rehabilitation. We also have interest in sleep monitoring (for sleep apnea), and neo-natal care (monitoring premature babies, in particular).

They will also: track your every move for Satan! Do you see that picture? The end is near my friends. the end is near…

    Any theories on how they’re gonna get it to say or symbolize the number 666 (or 616)? I’m sure Harold Camping will figure out some way to do it.

    This is a bad idea even without the “mark of the beast” potential. Scammers and hackers are no doubt hard at work already creating a gizmo to read your personal data right off the damned thing! :shock:

    I have to say, that mark just isn’t very “Metal”.
