A new smartphone being developed is set to revolutionize the way we manage healthcare by warning people of impending heart attack.

Nano-thin silicon heart-and blood-monitoring tattoos on peoples arms, which will send a signal to a smartphone if the data indicates a health problem are the basis of the new technology, Stuff.co.nz reported.

Zak Holdsworth, a Silicon Valley digital entrepreneur, and Kiwi is helping bring such technology to market.

He reckons that heart patients will be sporting the tattoos on their arms within five years, and in 10 years of time people could be sporting the technology inside their hearts.

MC10 is the Boston-based technology company behind the tattoos and is now investigating the potential of microchips that are being inserted via catheter on to the hearts inner lining from where a signal will be sent to the patients phone.
