#1996: SkinWindow

Today’s invention is a pendant containing a screen (a little like a small iPod).

The pendant would be worn on a chain around the neck, so that it could move only within a limited, arc-shaped locus.

It would be worn on bare skin (in private) to start with so that a camera on the skin side would record a series of images of the user’s skin texture at a large number of stored locations (and orientations).

When later worn over clothing, the wearer’s natural movements would cause the pendant to revisit its former locations and seamlessly display patches of the skin beneath the clothes.
