Back in March 2012 there was news about a Nokia patent application for a removable ferromagnetic ink tattoo that would send you haptic feedback whenever your phone gets a call. The idea was that different callers could be tied to different vibration patterns so that you could tell who is calling without looking at your phone. Now, we see a similar patent from Motorola, but the functionally is better.
Motorola wants to place a skin tattoo sticker on your neck and use it as a microphone, sending signals to your Motorola phone. The microphone would be able to send a clearer sound to your handset since background noise would be eliminated. The tattoo would have its own transceiver, antenna, microphone and signal processor. The tattoo would also have a screen even though the placement of the sticker means that you can’t see it. Maybe that is just add a visual decoration for others to see.
The tattoo could include a skin detector that would act as a lie detector. It would be able to tell if someone is talking in a confident manner and telling the truth. Maybe we should make it mandatory for politicians to use this.
