I *feel* that you are calling me…

Monday, March 26th, 2012 “Vibrating magnetic tattoos may one day be used to alert mobile phone users to phone calls and text messages if Nokia follows up a patent application.Β The Finnish company has described the idea in a filing to the US Patent and Trademark Office.Β It describes tattooing, stamping or spraying “ferromagnetic” material onto a user’s skin and then pairing it with a mobile device.”

The patent application suggests that a magnetic marking could be attached to a user’s arm, abdominal area, finger or fingernail…well uhhh, or perhaps somewhere else?!? This brings the touch revolution in today’s smartphones to a whole new level… πŸ˜‰
