    I came across this article today in the The Star which I found very interesting.
    Nokia has a patent that recently went public for a new magnetic tattoo which would vibrate when someone’s calling your phone.

    It's basically a haptic technology and they also state it won't interfere with medical devices or pacemakers.
    Personally, i'm not into Tattoo's. Never have been, never will be. Those of you that are, is this something that you would consider?

    let's discuss!

    What happened to Nokia, they used to be a leader in mobile industry.

    I'm just wondering who in their right mind would want a tattoo to vibrate on their body when the phone rings? Sounds a bit crazy if you ask me.

    Now, sex toys, different story.....

    Don't worry, Apple already invented that. At least that's what they'll say in 10th years! Didn't you hear. Apple just invented Microsoft Kinect!

    Nokia also proposes that instead of a tattoo a material worn on the body can detect a magnetic field and emit a vibration with options for different kind of haptic feedbacks, among which the user may choose to personalize the device. This is more appealing for those like me who do not like to have piercings of any kind on their body.
