Description

DuoSkin is a fabrication process that enables anyone to create customized

functional devices that can be attached directly on their skin. Using gold metal leaf, a

material that is cheap, skin-friendly, and robust for everyday

wear, we demonstrate three types of on-skin interfaces: sensing touch

input, displaying output, and wireless communication. DuoSkin draws from

the aesthetics found in metallic jewelry-like temporary tattoos to create

on-skin devices which resemble jewelry. DuoSkin devices enable users to

control their mobile devices, display information, and store information on

their skin while serving as a statement of personal style. We believe that in the

future, on-skin electronics will no longer be black-boxed and mystified; instead,

they will converge towards the user friendliness, extensibility, and

aesthetics of body decorations, forming a DuoSkin integrated to the extent that

it has seemingly disappeared.
