Nokia’s Vibrating Tattoos
The next time you get inked at Eight of Swords you might ask to get one of these. Nokia has patented a way of magnetic tattooing that will send a tingle through the wearer’s body whenever they receive a call or text. You can assign different vibrations for different callers and the company is even developing a similar patent for temporary tattoos. Why this is any better than a vibrating phone is beyond me, but just imagine what it would feel like if you were this guy.
Microsoft’s Virtual Reality Headset
While it’s definitely not a new idea, there is a race on to get the first virtual reality headset on the market. Google has their own sparse design for glasses-cum-smartphone, but I prefer Microsoft’s virtual reality headset. Planned as a new component of the XBox gaming system, there are even detachable glasses from the headset which can display an image 21 inches long about an arm’s length from the wearer.
