I’m sure this will work great until the armholes heal themselves and your pants heal to your shirt.

Temporary tattoos act as "on-skin user interfaces"

Gotta wonder how they’ll deal with the agitation without having the garment come out as just one big mass of “healed” fabric.


I just wear squid teeth and avoid the middleman!

Is the fabric really healing, or are they just gluing another piece on? I don’t see that the actual fibers are reconnecting to reform thread or yarn.


Sounds like post-graduate level magick.


I don’t think I’d wear underpants made of that stuff.
