When Does Technology Get a Little Creepy?

I have tattoos…and if Motorola/Google/Lenovo follows through with a recent patent application…our Technology will become embedded into our skin.  Yes that is right, according to US Patent Application 20130294617 the world will see us connecting to our devices using BlueTooth/NFC/Zigbee directly…no more douchebag earbud for us!

US20130294617A1-20131107-D00003For the most part, I am ok with companies and the government knowing what I am surfing, emailing and even to a degree knowing where I am but this…this is going just a bit too far and bringing us closer to a world of Cyborgs and Techno Wizardry like seen in the 90’s Role Playing Games Cyberpunk and Shadow Run.  I don’t know if I am comfortable with tech being used in this way…but in all likelihood, I would get one because of the convenience of being able to remotely connect with what ever the future holds for us (hopefully not quite like Oscar winner movie Her…that too is pretty darn creepy).

Cheers,

Krispy
