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.

Why it matters

While many joke that they ‘live on their mobile phones’, this literally allows Nokia technology to become a part of a person. As people stay plugged in for longer and brands increasingly weave into consumer’s lives, how will the boundaries between technology and human life start to change? What are the lines of consumer comfort we need to be mindful of as we innovate?
