Unlock your Moto X with a $1 temporary tattoo

2 months ago 6

Hardware wise, when the Motorola Moto X first launched, it was a bit of a letdown. But once people started getting their hands on the device and all the unique features the Moto X has to offer, its value became apparent. There are a handful of bullet-points that differentiate the Moto X from the crowd and they just keep coming.

Motorola has joined up with Vivalnk to offer temporary adhesive “digital tattoos” that work as a unique identifier for unlocking your Moto X. The tattoos use copper and work with NFC. For just $10, you get ten digital tattoos that last for around 5 days or so. In other words, you could probably make a ten pack last a couple months if you really tried.

This isn’t quite the permanent interactive tattoo solution we originally envisioned when the idea of tattoos, privacy and security started being thrown around together, but it’s very cool nonetheless. If you have a Moto X laying around, for just $10, this seems like a must have item. It would be worth it for showing off to your friends alone.
