responding to the fact that the average user spends 2.3 seconds to access their phone, approximately 39 times a day, motorola together with google’s advanced technology and projects group, and VivaLnk inc., have developed a nickel-sized digital tattoo that unlocks one’s mobile Moto X with a simple touch of the phone to the adhesive design.

the e-skin technology, which is delivered in an ultra-thin and flexible material, communicates wirelessly with the user’s smartphone and can be worn up to 5 days, withstanding normal conditions such as perspiration, water and physical activity. using NFC (near-field communication), the VivaLnk digital tattoo unlocks your Moto X without the need to type in your password or PIN — making logging in more secure and a lot faster.
