Submission + - Nokia Applies for Vibrating Tattoo Patent (unwiredview.com)

CanHasDIY writes: Tired of waiting for the Pip-Boy or Omni-Tool to be invented? Never fear! Nokia is developing the basic technology needed to make your dreams a reality: haptic-feedback tattoos. According to the patent application, Nokia is proposing “a material attachable to skin, the material capable of detecting a magnetic field and transferring a perceivable stimulus to the skin, wherein the perceivable stimulus relates to the magnetic field.”

Basically, the process is the same as for normal tattooing; the difference is in the ferromagnetic ink.

Kind of brings new meaning to the term "embedded device," doesn't it?
