MoodINQ With Tattoo Wand Or How To Change Your Tattoo For Every Situation
For most people out-there tattoos are either permanent (the ones that need a special intervention to be removed) or temporary (the ones that fade away and disappear in time). Of course, there are also the sticky ones kids play with in the summer, but I guess those can’t be counted as tattoos! But how about permanent tattoos that you can change and re-write in seconds anytime you like? Just imagine the possibilities: hook up that huge spider on your shoulder when going to the beach, a nice ink bracelet when going to a party, a little love heart when meeting your lover and so on …

How is this possible? Meet MoodINQ, the programmable tattoo! The MoodINQ is a tattoo system that uses skin-safe E-ink pigments that can be configured to display any design or message. The E-Ink system grid, which is also called a canvas, is implanted by specialized physicians and lasts a life time. Once the canvas is implanted, you choose your tattoo from the internal 100,000 tattoos data base and simply apply it with the Tattoo Wand. Personal pictures or messages can also be uploaded via a PC soft, adjusted on your computer and applied on your skid with the Wand.

YotaPhone - The Dual Screen Android Russian Smartphone At It's Second Generation
Remember the YotaPhone? The dual screen Russian smartphone developed by the guys over at Yota Devices?
The second generation of this cool smartphone was just announced. We’re still speaking about a dual screen layout including a 5″ front HD LCD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) and a back 4.7″ EPD (Electronic Paper Display) or E-Ink screen sporting a 960×540-pixel resolution. The E-Ink screen was updated with full touch functionality and most smartphone functions can be used without having to turn on the main display. The new model of YotaPhone features improved specs over the first model – an OLED 442 PPI front display with 1080p resolution for a full smartphone experience, quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm processor and 2GB RAM will allow increased performance with most games and apps out there, 32GB of on-board storage, 8MP back camera, all connectivity technologies such as Wi-Fi, LTE, Bluetooth, NFC, wireless charging and a 2,500mAh battery to power the system.

While 2,500 mAh doesn’t seem much power for today’s smartphones, the YotaPhone comes with an power-saving mode that completely turns off the AMOLED screen and keeps the back EDP screen going, easily giving you a few extra hours of usage out of an almost finished battery. YotaDevices did not release exact info about battery life, so we’re looking forward to these stats. They can be a total game changer!

The YotaSmartphone will be available towards the end of 2014 and will have a price tag of around $499 US.

The Russian smartphone stands of the pack by featuring two screens – a 4.3-in LCD front screen with 720×1,280 resolution (just as any other recent smartphone) and a second 200dpi e-Ink screen positioned on the back of the phone where you would usually see the battery back cover. The addition of the e-Ink screen allows users to read information on a less disturbing environment for the human eye as well as helps saving battery power. One really cool feature is that even if the battery runs out, the e-Ink screen will retain the last image displayed on it making it a great tool to display maps, boarding tickets, movie passes or any other info you might need to have handy, even when your phone is “juice-less”.

Other then the two screens set up, the Yota Phone sports a dual-core 1.7Ghz processor, 2GB of Ram, 32Gb of eMMC (storage), back and front cameras, a classic FM radio which cool to see a embedded in the smartphone and runs on Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2.

myIDkey - The Biometric Secured Portable Password and File Manager

While you could easily use an online password manager like LastPass to access your passwords online and offline (on your smartphone), the myIDkey brings an even more convenient solution.

The myIDkey features an e-Ink screen that allows you to read information while not connected to a PC (think about going to the bank ATM and trying to remember your PIN for that 4th Visa in your wallet!), is voice activated (simply ask for a specific user login info and the myIDkey will display it on the screen), can auto-fill information on your PC, Mac and Smartphone browsers (this is done via secured Bluetooth) and allows centralized cloud data storage and sharing between users. The myIDkey was highly acclaimed and awarded at International CES 2013 in the Computer Accessories, Personal Electronics and Computer Peripherals categories.

The myIDkey is available on Kickstarter.com for a minimum pledge of $99.
UPDATE – 09/07/2014Please note that MyIDKey projects are reported to encounter financing issues and production/delivery seems to be delayed for a later date or even closed (information source). Please do your due diligence and check the status/delivery of the project before ordering this product.
