The Apple Watch is so last week.
The next, more advanced device currently under development is Project Underskin, a wearable piece of technology for underneath your skin, WIRED Health reports.
The way Project Underskin would work is by utilizing two sub-dermal screens, one implanted in the palm and other publicly visible on the thumb, that would interact with anything you touch, "from [checking] your key health metrics like glucose levels, to helping you exchange data, emotions and payment with other people or objects," Amit told WIRED Health.
"It can [also] unlock your front door, trade data with a handshake, or even tell you if you have low blood sugar," Fast Company pointed out.
Amit predicts the implanted devices will be available within five years.
"The technology is not far-fetched," he told WIRED.
