Epidermal Electronic System: Monitoring Thoughts & Sending Wireless Signals

Wearable Electronic Circuits
This new wearable electronic technology is called "epidermal electronic system" (EES) it allows for a circuit to be fixed to the skin and moves with the body; stretching,bending and twisting without damaging the circuit. This is the first wearable technologies to be marketed under the guise of hip and cool targeting the tattoo enthusiasts with integrated LED's, transistors, wireless antennas, biometric sensors and radio frequency capacitors.

Hidden in Tattoo
Big Pharma have already concocted a way to embed microchips into medications to monitor patient compliance sending information to a patch worn by the user which relays biometric information to the doctor. How many different applications for surveillance can you think of for this wearable WIFI device? Will the medical industry use this technology to spy on you by monitoring your brain waves, moods and negative thoughts while receiving medications for anti-depression or anxiety?. The picture below only makes you wonder is this the mark of the beast?
