Default Motorola wants to patent a NECK TATTOO that doubles up as a microphone

"Forget Google Glass, smartwatches and even the biohacker who inserted a microchip under his skin, Motorola is hoping to trump them all with its microphone tattoo. According to a patent filed by the Google-owned phone maker, the tattoo would be placed onto a personís throat and pick sounds created by their voice. If the user is making a phone call, the tattoo would then send these sounds wirelessly to the smartphone and the caller." -- DailyMail.co.uk

I'm still trying to get over the fact that Moto is now "A Google Company"

But really, a tattoo?? I'd rather have the implant phone like in the latest Total Recall movie..

O.....kay............

I had to checking the header banner of that page at least four times to make sure it didn't say "The Onion". This not only screams "HOAX", it says it in big, flashing neon letters!

You may have already known this (especially where you live) but in case you didn't, Motorola Mobility, the co that slaps the batwings logo onto cell phones is owned by google. But the Motorola Solutions, the company that helps governments get rid of any pesky budget surpluses and puts the batwings logo on $7,000 portable radios is not owned by google.

Oh, don't worry, I'm sure they'll be getting around to that next. So much for google's motto "Don't Be Evil".
