Researchers at the University of California San Diego are getting ready to give us all super-powers! We'll be so awesome, it's not even funny!

Okay, maybe not quite that, but this is pretty cool. These guys are developing these tiny "tattoos" that read electrical impulses in the body to do cool things, like (almost) telepathic communication, and (almost) telekinesis! You'd stick on this patch, and your mind could basically send signals through this thing to other devices to make them do cool stuff.

"We've demonstrated our sensors can pick up the electrical signals of muscle movements in the throat so that people can communicate just with thought," Coleman says. Electronic tattoos placed over the throat could also pick up signals that would help smartphones with speech recognition, he added.

Would it be too much to ask for the ability to see through clothing? Not much of a super-power, I know, but it seems pretty cool to me!
