I know I'm old, and progress is evolving around me, but this? Holy Cow! What on earth could be so important that you need a tattoo to vibrate to let you know someone was trying to reach you on your cell phone?

Unbelievable.

Your Next Tattoo May Vibrate When You Get a Phone Call [VIDEO]

Oh, boy! I hesitate to ask what's next! Before reading it my first thought was having something like the chips used for cats and dogs embedded in a tattoo. But it's a patch ... I think.

Wonder if this idea will ever get to be a big fad. The way the world is going, one never knows.

Dallas Kitty, that's what I thought too - at first. Further down in the article it talks about a special kind of ink....

"In addition to being attached to your body in fabric form, the patent also suggests producing the same effect with ferromagnetic ink in the form of a tattoo. Ink would be demagnetized before it was placed on your body, and then magnetized again once your “Mom” tattoo was complete."

I think Nokia has gone beyond belief

Holy banana! Glad I didn't read that far while eating my lunch!

This could be a useful device for proving unhealthy effects of cell phone use in lawsuits.

Oh boy... Well, I guess that's what you would call "Good Vibrations".... and it has nothing to do with the song by the Beach Boys. Imagine the possibilities, you're standing talking to somebody and all of the sudden, she gets a call notification.... Okay, I'm not going to say anything else.. But I am going to watch Nokia's stock, before and after that patent is approved.
