Subcutaneous Display - an implantable display device powered by the nutrients in your blood! You implant it underneath the subcutaneous layer of your skin, then hook up your blood vessels to the power cell. Intense bioTechnology, indeed. Now that's got to be more Touchy than iPod Touch. LOL ;) It could be a good medical device though.

23 views (24-1) and no replies! I have feeling that this view counts feature makes people lesser inclined to post. ;) Anyway, any comments on this outrageous display device? Jokes?

Well, the obvious application is dynamic tattoos. When you change girlfriends, just re-program the "tat".

One could even suggest a military application for auto-adaptive camouflage of skin not covered by the uniform: face, hands, ears, etc.

I think the guy who had plastic surgery to turn himself into a snake, and the man and the woman who had surgery to turn themselves into a cat (complete with detachable screw-in whiskers) might be interested.

[1] Excellent feature for Hollywood actors / actresses, since they seem to change spouses rather frequently.
[2] Two draw backs for such application: one, discomfort, imagine having all those implants on your face; two, larger the covering, more power needed, in term more blood nutrients needed -- just matter how long you can sustain power to these devices before you faint. ;)

One application I can think of is use it as "Sticky Notes". One will never forget what to do, anywhere he/she goes!

How much would it cost? Is surgery required?

[1] No idea. But the device will be only part of the spending -- surgery, insurance, and the external device that generates the graphics / data (remember it's only a display).
[2] Yes. Small incision and local anesthesia performed by a licensed physician, most likely. The most dangerous and tricky part, as I imagine, is to branch out an artery for supplying the device. No do it yourself here. ;)

Now, what if the device suddenly gets power-hungry? Am I going to get tired all of a sudden, end up with low blood sugar ... what?

This give a whole new meaning to "Low Battery" -- warning, power is low, please eat more.

Wait 'til these implanted computing devices get smarter and smarter, and eventually become self-aware. The host will become the slave. We will be nothing but PSUs for the machines that are parasitically living in our bodies.

Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) from No Country for old men is here.
The ultimate badass he is.
The baddest Spanish mofo has arrived.

Do you get the ending of the movie No Country for Old Men? If you do, please explain it to me! :~
