Taking the concept of “Skin as the New Interface” to the next level, “Bare,” a body paint that conducts electricity, was developed by Royal College of Art students Becky Pilditch, Matt Johnson, Isabel Lizardi and Bibi Nelson.
Non-toxic conductive ink
Bare is a non-toxic conductive ink that can be applied directly to the skin.

By transforming skin into a highly conductive surface, the body can be used to interact with electronic circuits through gesture, movement and touch.

Potential applications I am assuming are mainly for performance based media art. Currently, in the medical industry, a conductive gel is used on the skin of patients as a means of providing a low resistance contact between the surface of the skin and an electrode. This product may (or may not) be a good DIY alternative for those of you fascinated by this idea. Via TalktoMyShirt
