For those who thought that a skin circuit implant was only a crazy idea of science fiction or a horrible and distant dystopian future, materials scientist John Rogers' recently developed skin stamped circuit technology is destined to change your opinion on this cutting edge matter.

Conducting research for the University of Illinois, Rogers has developed his flexible circuitry system to actually adhere onto our skin, similarl to a rub on tattoo. Containing capacitors, inductive coils, transistors and many more computer components, this skin circuit system will work to better integrate our bodies with the technology we use on a daily basis.

These skin circuit stamps are flexible with the natural movements of our bodies and last about two weeks until they dissolve from the surface of our skin. Rogers sees his remarkable skin circuit technology appearing in sports, tech and eventually surgical tools of the future. Stats for Cyborg Circuit Implants Trending: Older & Mild
