Apparently, Nokia has applied for a patent for a tattoo that vibrates when your phone rings. Hu?
Not, not the a Nokia tattoo. [Flashyourtattoo]
The patent describes ‘a material attachable to skin, which is capable of detecting a magnetic field and transferring a perceivable stimulus to the skin.’ The practical use of this, is a removable vibrating tattoo.
While the technology isn’t specific and could be used in many different ways, the patent makes it clear that embedding the material is the main use. It talks about using ‘ink enriched by ferromagnetic or paramagnetic compounds.’ [OMG Facts]
Seems a little annoying, right? How about just keeping your phone next to you and answering it when it rings?
Listen to these people talk about….something.
