Nokia haptic tattoo

Haptic technology is a form of tactile feedback, which takes advantage of the sense of touch by applying motions to the user. One of the earliest and most frequently occurring applications of this technology today is the vibration generated by our mobile phones when we receive a call or text message. On a less commercial level, haptic technology is also applied in pilot training exercises and medical simulators. Right now, it seems that Nokia would like to take this technology to its next phase and is proposing the development of a tattoo that vibrates according to commands from one’s mobile phone.
