Engineers at the University of California, San Diego developed a high-tech wearable in the form of a temporary smart tattoo. It is said that the monitoring device can stealthily measure the alcohol levels in the wearer's system and transmit the data to a phone application via Bluetooth.
The smart tattoo gets data by stimulating perspiration through a harmless chemical release. The biosensory patch's process assures up-to-date and precise information about alcohol levels in the bloodstream.
The efficiency and real-life tracking of the temporary smart tattoo makes it useful and extremely valuable when one is going out for a drink. In addition, the fact that it is in a simple format that could appeal to Millennials and Gen Z will make the biosensory patch accessible to young drivers.
