Over The Top, Under The Skin
At once very cool, and heading for disaster, this invention impresses me in its brilliance, and scares me in its likely outcome if it gets into the marketplace.
And while we're on the subject, did you hear about the guy who got breast implants for the lady tattooed on his leg? Unsurprisingly, given the lack of sterile technique evident in the pictures, they ultimately became infected and were removed. In fact, the "final" picture looks a little infected already.
Given the size and nearness to the skin of the nerdgasmic and geektastic device referred to in the first paragraph, erosion and/or infection would seem very probable. On the other hand, you wouldn't have to hunt for a phone to dial 911.
