Nokia files patent for ringing cellphone tattoo
People of a certain age seem to covet two things: smartphones and tattoos. Well, Nokia has figured out a way to combine the two.
The Swedish phone-maker has filed a patent for a tattoo that would vibrate when a phone call was coming in or when the phone battery was running low.
The person would scratch their arm to get rid of the alert and it would feel like a tingling sensation. The tattoo is a material that attaches to skin, detects a magnetic field and then transfers that stimulus to the skin.
It could be the next big thing.
