BBC.co.uk: “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.ย The Finnish company has described the idea in a filing to the US Patent and Trademark Office.ย 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… ๐Ÿ˜‰
