Leave a message – on this tattoo
Nokia has developed a haptic tattoo ink that vibrates, similar to the way mobile phone screens do when touched. The ink can be either temporary or permanent, and is magnetized before it’s applied so that the user’s skin vibrates when their phone rings or receive a text message.

What are the lines of consumer comfort we need to be mindful of as we innovate?
