Nokia’s newest health product is a new take on an already-done product.
Nokia announced last week its intention to become a much bigger technological force in the vehicle after years of being the auto industry’s mapmaker. Nokia took the wraps off of Here Auto, an embedded infotainment and connected car system, which it hopes to sell to the world’s car manufacturers.
Samsung Galaxy Note
In the first quarter of 2012, Samsung became the world’s largest cellphone brand for the first time, overtaking longtime market leader Nokia.
Nokia’s idea would involve semi-permanent markings on the user’s body.
A patent application was filed by Nokia that would involve users having vibrating magnetic tattoos that alert them to incoming mobile phone calls or text messages.
The new shape of cell?
Nokia apparently feels like the smart phones we have today aren’t rubbery or flexible enough to take us into the future, so they are introducing a design that will change the way we use, and touch, our phones.
Called the HumanForm, this rubbery surfboard shaped device is virtually unbreakable, has twist control functionality, and will supposedly allow us to feel textures via “electro tactile technology”.
