Secret service-style, eh!

...another rather quirky patent from Google that has just been filed focuses on an electronic skin tattoo that connects to a mobile device and can even be used as a lie detector.

Donít think of it as your regular tattoo, since this one is not permanent, but rather gets applied to the skin with a sticky substance.

The purpose of the device is to allow the wearer to communicate to someone without having to use their phone directly. Think of it as a James Bond-style secret gadget that lets the user discuss things undetected.

Google suggests that the electronic tattoo could be used by security personnel, such as on stadiums, busy streets or emergency situations. Google Files Patent For a Communications Tattoo [news.softpedia.com]

If I could think of a more elegant reply than "Oh, puh-leeze!" I would use it.

Only in America.
