Is That Your Tattoo Ringing To Indicate an Incoming Call? [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.

The Finnish company has described the idea in a filing to the US Patent and Trademark Office.

It describes tattooing, stamping or spraying "ferromagnetic" material onto a user's skin and then pairing it with a mobile device.

It suggests different vibrations could be used to create a range of alerts.



What will they think of next!

Whew. It would be dreadful if you missed a call just because you were in the shower and you have one of those old-fashioned cell phones that isn't submersible.

It is a sign of how low humanity will sink. Personally I don't want to be contactable all the time.

The SF writer Larry Niven predicted sub dermal implants of phones and watches. I'll wait until that technology arrives then I can have the phone taken out and replaced easily. Not some tawdry tattoo which as it is iron will probably rust or cause blood poisoning.

Gone are the days when you get a tattoo only to make OTHER peoples' skin crawl.

Yeah, but think about how much fun that would be in the security check line at the airport! :)
