Cyberpunk Is Here

...or at least, aesthetic ware is.

A company has literally produced a powered implant that does nothing but make a red star glow under your hand. (The next generation will allow compatible devices to be operated by gesture).

Metallic temporary tattoos have been used to put QR codes on models so the audience can pull up more about their clothes - and may replace your con badge (they last three days - about the right length of time).

Of course, the problem with implants is that they may be vulnerable to hacking. Or your hand implant may interfere with the connection of your bluetooth keyboard...

But I've always liked the idea of some of these purely aesthetic things. Like, say, color-changing tattoos that can be programmed to disappear at work - or when your mother shows up.
