This board focuses mainly on self-tracking gadgets and sensors - especially those designed for health. While most are wearable, there are some that track from inside the body or that you put against your body. Some of these products are concepts or are not yet commercially available. Welcome to the world of 'Wear, Share, Compare' and Quantified Self.

Project Underskin - Digital Tattoo Implanted Under Your Skin [Concept only] From NewDealDesign. It "would be implanted in your hand and interact with everything you touch. It can unlock your front door, trade data with a handshake, or even tell you if you have low blood sugar." Would run off of your body’s electro-chemical energy. "Because Underskin would recognize both location and the movements within your body, it could not just track, but contextualize the gestures that you make."
