Small miracles


Do you think that the mobile phones and computers of today are compact and smart? Well, they are nowhere near the products that are soon to hit the market. Kinnarps has taken a closer look at so-called biostamps.

Simply put, this is the ultimate in laptop computers - a plastic film that sticks to your skin in roughly the same size as a plaster but much thinner. This has been made possible thanks to researchers managing to design computer circuits that can be folded over and over without snapping in two. Biostamps were initially intended for use in the healthcare sector. A fantastic method to perform simpler and more reliable examinations. A biostamp stores all medical data and then communicates with, for example, a doctor's mobile phone to say how you feel, detailing everything from your blood sugar levels to your pulse and breathing or whatever health issue you may have. The perfect tool for keeping an eye on new-born babies. But there are of course other applications for biostamps, or digital tattoos as they are also referred to, other than in the medical sector. And Google has developed a biostamp for the police authorities that works as a lie detector. Biostamps will offer many practical benefits in our workplaces Samsung has launched a biostamp that can be attached to the neck and which transmits and amplifies sound via a mobile phone. An amazing aid in noisy environments. Not to mention the next stage in the development where biostamps can be online 24/7 using an app interface. This will turn us into walking computers. A scary thought perhaps but also one to ponder.
