Can we make tattoos both beautiful and functional? Nanotechnologist Carson Bruns shares his work creating high-tech tattoos that react to their environment — like color-changing ink that can tell you when you’re getting a sunburn — and shows exciting ways they can deliver real-time information about our health.
This talk was presented to a local audience at TEDxMileHigh, an independent event. TED’s editors chose to feature it for you.
