So, how much more connected to your mobile phone do you want to be? Phone giant Nokia might have the answer for those especially daring among you. It has described details of a patent that would allow users to have a tattoo, stamp or spray on their skin using a ‘ferromagnetic’ material which links to another device.

Different vibrations would mean different things such a low battery, a phone call or text message, a reminder of a meeting or birthday, or even who is calling.
So, sound like something you’d be into?
