Electronic "tattoo" Patient Info On a Patch?

I know we haven't heard from Dr. Saunders in quite some time, but needless to say, he has left a legacy of paranoia concerning company/state run medical and advertizement. Some sort of subcutaneous chip was often in play with one of his stories or books. Well it would seem that present day "chipping" is not so far away of so very different than Saunders cautionary tales. According to a story I was reading in the Kim Commando News section of an article from Englemend News - Scientists at the University of Illinois have created electronic skin that wirelessly transmits vital signs. These "Wireless tattoo" provides patient monitoring without wires,or electrodes, but by simply applying an adhesive patch!
