Vibrating Nokia tattoos could be coming to an arm near you very soon! We have filed a patent application with the US Patent and Trademark Office for a ferromagnetic material that can be applied to a mobile phone users skin! The material can be stamped, sprayed or tattooed onto a subjects body. The Nokia Connects team can’t wait to get one.
The ferromagnetic material vibrates in a multitude of ways when a message, phone call, low battery indication or several other alerts are received by the tattoo from a Nokia phone. The magnetic field can cause of multitude of different vibrations!
The magnetic mark can however remain invisible, making it more appealing to people who don’t want to visibly mark their body with a tattoo. I know I’m not a tattoo person so this would appeal to me, but each to their own! Wait, there is more….
The tattoo also acts as a form of identity. Yes, could this be the end of passports?! Maybe not, but it does mean that I would no longer need to type a password into my phone. I AM THE PASSWORD!! If I happened to be walking around blissfully unaware that my pocket was flapping open on a busy street and someone saw the opportunity to steal my phone, I would be over the moon that they couldn’t access it without a small marking on my arm!
We will let you know soon once/if the patent application is successful. Fingers crossed everyone, until then don’t leave your pockets flapping open.
What tattoo would you get? Let me know @Nokia_Connects
