You can now unlock your Motorola phone with a 'digital tattoo'

Hate unlocking your Android smartphone so much that even Face Unlock or Skip feels like too much of a hassle? Motorola just came to your rescue. The company has partnered with VivaLnk to launch the previously teased Digital Tattoo, an NFC-based skin tag that unlocks your phone (currently limited to the Moto X)
with a quick tap. The tattoo can stay on your body for up to five days,
and it should survive abuses like showers and sweat-laden runs. It's a
clever approach that might be appealing if you're fed up with PIN codes
and patterns, although the back-of-a-napkin math suggests that you're
paying a lot just to save a couple of seconds when checking your email.
VivaLnk is asking $10 for packs of 10 tattoos, or enough to last 50 days
-- you'll have to spend $80 to get through a whole year. It could be
useful for those busy days when you're constantly waking up your
handset, but you might be better off rolling that money into a Moto 360 or your next big phone upgrade.
