The article proposes a top-to-bottom system of body-based tech, including augmented reality peripherals, “elastronic” skin-based touch displays, and even brain implants. The researchers go on to discuss roadblocks to the bodyNET’s adoption. In particular, cultural taboos might make it hard for some to adopt such extensive physical modifications. Other concerns include data privacy, whether the influx of biometric data may have unintended…
