Well, it’s finally happening — Nokia has filed a patent for a tattoo that would act as a receiver for your cell phone, and buzz your skin whenever you get a call, text or email.
The tattoo would work using ink that’s receptive to magnetic waves, which seems totally safe. You’d also be able to set different buzzes for different people, the same way you can give friends and family varying ring tones.
I won’t mince words here — I find technology that’s permanently embedded into your skin terrifying. I also find it inevitable. So, once this catches on I will be moving myself into a happy home beneath a rock somewhere. With no tattoos.
