Earth 2100 has been ravaged by plague and diseases, resulting in the mass destruction of the earth’s major ecosystems. We no longer have the means to produce resources, goods and services to provide for the demand of the human population.

The UN has declared the global crisis and have decided on the implementation of a new system to regulate the remainder of earth’s resources; one that is not based on a monetary value but rather an alternative form currency to maximize the survivability of the human race.
The new system is based on the release of a new skin, an ENCRYPTED BIOMETRIC skin that is constantly monitoring the user’s vitality and health status. Maximizing the survivability of the human race will be a function of maintaining a certain level of health throughout the various regions of the world. This monitoring will be derived through the genecode and the chemical composition of your blood. Your health status will now provide the means for you to obtain or purchase specific goods or resources. More enriching or nutritious resources will be allocated to specific areas where the overall health status of the population is low, and vice versa.

What we envision as a result of the new skin, is that the world will no longer be defined by political or geographical boundaries, but rather territories of health zones to maintain certain livability aspects. Whether this is a good outcome or not we shall tell.

Another result of the skin is the development of a new sense, a sixth sense. The development of the skin will bring about research in the comprehension and understanding of the patterns of the skin, creating a new codex or language for the general population to perceive and identify patterns with their other 5 senses.
