Electrifying Body Makeup

Temporary Paint From Bare Conducts Electricity

— April 28, 2009 — Eco
If you always wanted to be part of an integrated circuit board, Bare will make it possible. Bare is a paint that is harmless to your skin, but conducts electricity rather handily.

Some Royal College of Art students came up with the new temporary paint for artistic performances. However, I suspect the techno-geeks will soon be using it to “interface” with their Second Life soon.

Implications - In today's economy, many individuals find themselves encountering day-to-day experiences that are mundane, tiring and repetitive. These consumers may be looking for original and thrilling ways to inject some much needed excitement into their lives. Businesses will benefit by providing consumers with products or services that can generate a sense of exhibitionism or extravagance into their otherwise standard and boring lifestyles.
