You can now unlock your Moto X with 'digital tattoos' While it is likely more convenient to use a fingerprint reader, Motorola has introduced new 'digital tattoos' that will allow you to unlock your smartphone without having to input a password or PIN.
Moto X owners in the U.S. can purchase the temporary tattoos (10 for $10) from Vivalnk, which are basically NFC stickers that are flexible enough and thin enough to be worn on the body unobtrusively.

The company says the tattoos should last about one work week, and are waterproof. They can be removed at any point.

To unlock the device you just tap your Moto X to the tattoo, which is certainly convenient but paying $10 every 50 days to unlock your phone in a "fun" way is going to be a dealbreaker for most.
