Most people seem to have their phone attached to the hip. Even if you’re on a dinner date, hanging with friends or having a serious conversation, it seems that lots of folks immediately whip out their mobile device at the sound of a text. So can you imagine how social situations would be if people had tattoos notifying them of incoming messages?
While “texting tattoos” haven’t been invented just yet, Nokia decided to jump the gun and patent them, just in case technology does advance that far. In theory, text tattoos would use ferromagnetic ink, which would vibrate from “magnetic waves emitted from a user’s phone, sending ‘a perceivable stimulus’ (think a small pulse or itch)” every time the user receives a text or call. There are also plans to have different pulses for different notifications, such as texts, emails, phone calls and voicemails. [via Gawker]
Would you ever get a text tattoo? If not, how would you feel about friends that had one?
