One, this illustrates (to me, at least) that we're heading towards the transhumanistic age that I am looking forward to. Yet, so many people fear the inevitable changes coming. Perhaps it's just Alberta, where I live. This isn't the most culturally significant region of North America.
Two, these designs are geared currently for a particular group. I shudder to think that one day I might see some fucking hussie in some club wearing such just to perpetuate trendiness. They've diluted the whole punk genre enough, the concept is deserving of its own funeral at this point.
Three… crap, I forgot what three was.
EDIT — As an add-on to this post, I came across this dermal nanotech display via Information Aesthetics:
a 'programmable dermal display' in which a population of about 3 billion 'display pixel robots' are permanently implanted a fraction of a millimeter under the surface of the skin, covering a rectangle 6cm x 5cm on the back of the hand. photons emitted by these pixel bots produce an image on the surface of the skin. this pixel bot array could be programmed to form any real-time information-driven display. amazingly, 'data visualization' suddenly turns into a whole new meaning if the entire human body can be considered as a living information display made up of data-driven tattoos.
