DuoSkin is a fabrication process that enables anyone to create customized functional devices that can be attached directly on their skin.
With the help of this new technology, the features will be embedded on the skin in the form of a #tattoo. The interface of the tattoo will help the user move the virtual cursor on their device, store data and send commands to other devices.
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.
Zombie Boy (a.k.a. “Rico the Zombie” and born Rick Stephan Genest) will challenge your sensibilities about what you believe to be beautiful. At his core he is a chiaroscuro of both light and dark—part gentle warrior, part anti-establishment artful dodger, and he has serendipitously become the ‘it’ muse for anyone who believes in a brave new world without judgment. His tattoos have equally intrigued and inspired a cult following and he has a growing following of millions of fans worldwide. He has sparked a revolution with fans who see beyond the visceral and want to know everything they can about the mysterious icon, model, muse, stage performer, singer and songwriter known as ‘Zombie Boy.’
