Can we make tattoos both beautiful and functional? Nanotechnologist Carson Bruns shares his work creating high-tech tattoos that react to their environment -- like color-changing ink that can tell you when you're getting a sunburn -- and shows exciting ways they can deliver real-time information about our health.
Carson Bruns has co-authored more than 30 peer-reviewed scientific publications, including the celebrated book The Nature of the Mechanical Bond: From Molecules to Machines, with Nobel Laureate J. Fraser Stoddart. He is an assistant professor of mechanical engineering in the ATLAS Institute at the University of Colorado Boulder, where he directs the Emergent Nanomaterials Lab. His work has been featured in Inked Magazine, Chemical and Engineering News and Colorado Public Radio.
