The Mark: Will you wear this “beast tech” digital tattoo that can read your mind and operate your devices?

Will you wear this beast tech digital tattoo that can read your mind and operate your devices

Over the next several years we’ll begin to see advanced bio-technologies hit the retail market. According to Tom Horn, author of On the Path of the Immortals, this Beast Tech could lead to the eventual extinction of the human race as we know it today.

Google engineers, for example, are working on life-extending technologies that will directly modify our DNA to keep us alive longer. Some have suggested that in the near future it will not be out of the question to live for 150 years or more.

The advancements are happening at such an incredible pace that it’s difficult to keep up.

Last month scientists announced that they have successfully brought back the Woolly Mammoth and spliced it with the genes of an Asian elephant. And just a couple of weeks ago Chinese researchers edited the genes of a human embryo, opening the door to the real possibility of not just curing disease before a child is even born, but enhancing them with faster muscles, a more intelligent brain, or better eye sight.

Many of the real-world applications for DNA modification technologies are still some years out but the evolution towards technologies that will change a human to a cyborg are taking place right now.

Take, for example, a new tattoo that is applied behind the ear. Once installed and integrated, the tattoo will not only act like an EEG and be able to identify your moods, but it will also be able to “listen” to your brain to launch applications, control home devices like your coffee machine or TV on demand, and they’ll eventually even eliminate your mobile phone because the speaker and microphone will be built right in.

It promises to let us monitor our brains discreetly 24 hours a day, and can be worn continuously for two weeks, staying put whether you’re swimming, running or sleeping.

John Rogers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign led the team that built the device, which is so light that it sticks to the skin through van der Waals force – the same mechanism that lets geckos’ feet stick to surfaces. It only falls off when the build-up of dead skin beneath it makes it lose its grip.

Comprising just a small patch of gold electrodes on and behind the ear, it beats the existing tech, described by Rogers as a “rat’s nest of wires attached to devices that interface to the skin with tape and gels and bulky metallic objects”.

To test it, the team looked at their system’s performance in tasks that clinical EEG devices usually handle. For example, volunteers were able to spell out the word “computer” on a screen in front of them using their brains’ electrical activity.

Their stick-on EEG was wired up to a computer for the tests, but the team is working on wireless transmission of data and power, something they have already achieved in other devices.

The focus is on medical applications to begin with – “EEG is important in detecting seizures – particularly in premature babies,” says Rogers. But the fact that it can sit discreetly behind an ear means that all kinds of other applications are feasible. No one wants to wear a headset constantly, but applying a hidden electronic tattoo once every two weeks is more acceptable.

Although Hidden EEG can’t rival the precision of the keyboard and mouse from your desktop computer, it is good for controlling systems in a more passive manner. Instead, it might start a coffee pot brewing in the morning when your brain activity implies you’re waking up. Or, if the device reads that you’re in a highly focused state, it could tell your phone to silence any notifications.

The new technology, as noted by the developers, will also hook directly into cell phone and Wifi networks automatically.

While this will give adopters of the technology the ability to instantly access everything from their home air conditioning unit to their daily schedules, the danger, of course, is that the connection to the internet will be two-way. This means that those who wear the technology will also open their brains up to monitoring by research teams and more than likely the government.

Imagine a scenario where law enforcement obtains a warrant to wiretap your brain. Or perhaps worse (but not by much), a situation that allows unscrupulous individuals the capability to brain-hack your emotions and thoughts.

Need to steal someone’s bank account number or password? Brain-hacking will be all the rage and we can most certainly envision a world where this intimate information is eventually sold to the highest bidder on the dark web.

Just as millions of Americans who protest the surveillance state happily put cameras, microphones, and GPS trackers in their pockets on a daily basis,  so too will the next generation of global citizens with the advent of Beast Technologies.

While it may be hard to imagine people voluntarily subjecting themselves to something that can read their thoughts or modify their genetic makeup, the fact is that millions will adopt these technologies as a way to enhance their inter-connectivity and physical abilities. If the last ten years are any guide, they’ll be lining up in droves.

And those who don’t want the technology will be forced to have it implanted, according to some researchers:

[quote_box_center]It’s not possible to interact with society in a meaningful way by not having a mobile phone. I think human implants are likely to go along a very similar route. It would be such a disadvantage to not have the implant that it essentially becomes not optional.[/quote_box_center]

Just as there is a push to force health care and vaccinations onto people through government mandates, you’ll likely be required to be “chipped” or “tattoo’d” as part of your Patriotic duty. Failure to do so will mean you don’t want to be a participant in a peaceful, law-abiding society.

This next wave of technological advancement, where we begin to directly modify and enhance the genome and the physical human body, is unstoppable. Governments and multi-billion dollar corporations are heavily invested in it. A large portion of the world population will accept it without question.

When they do, will we still be able to call them human?
