Submission + - Researchers Push Implanted User Interfaces (txchnologist.com)

MatthewVD writes: "A new, user interface-enabled generation of electronics that you wear under your skin could be used for convenience, or even pleasure, rather than medical reasons. Scientists at Autodesk Research in Toronto have implanted electronics with user buttons, pressure sensors and LEDs under the skin of a cadaver's arm and wrapped in artificial skin. The electronics could buzz you when you have an appointment, carry memory cars with data or connect you in a social network with others wearing electronics. "It's a way of letting someone under your skin," says one expert. The researchers will be presenting at the Association of Computing Machinery Conference next week."
