In June 2013 Patently Apple reported on both Apple and Motorola looking to introduce device authentication systems for mobile devices. While Apple's Touch ID has since come to market with their new iPhone 5S, Motorola is still working on their own system. One of Motorola's more intriguing authentication system options includes the use of a consumer applied electronic skin tattoo. Motorola first openly discussed this system with Walt Mossberg during their annual D11 conference held in May of 2013 or just weeks prior to Edward Snowden's NSA spying revelations. All of sudden, Motorola's e-skin tattoo authentication system doesn't seem to be as innocent as first thought, especially in light of a bizarre admission that we found in a Motorola patent application published by the US Patent Office.
