Technology has emerged tremendously in the past few years and gadgets that can only be seen in sci-fi movies are slowly becoming a reality. People are getting too attached to their gadgets that they almost want to graft it as part of their system.
Well, a perfect example for this is the magnetic vibrating tattoo or badge that Nokia has patented just recently. It is a body mark that vibrates whenever there’s a notification in your Nokia phone like an upcoming call, text or a low battery notification. Amazing isn’t it? The wristwatch gadget from other manufacturers started it but Nokia wants to take a higher leap. Pretty smart to file the patent before it goes out to the market as it would surely be another ground for patent issues in the future.
Getting yourself inked for the sake of technology won’t be getting a fair share of approval though as not everyone would love it. It would also come along with a health risk depending on where the ink would be placed. Just imagine yourself playing poker games and while you’re analyzing your next move, your tattoo in the belly suddenly vibrates for an upcoming call. Isn’t it disturbing? You wouldn’t want to risk real money poker moments just because of a sudden notification. No one tried to use it though and we’ll just wait on how it will push through.
