Moto Hopes To Shui Buyers With Odd Patents
from the pretty-chi-sy dept
It was reported last week that Motorola had received a patent for a system that would use electrical shocks instead of vibrations when a cell phone rang, and they've gotten a couple more slightly bizarre patents this week. The first is for a phone whose vibration can be used for "therapeutic stimulation", while the second is for a phone that can measure the chi levels for Feng Shui, using GPS, ambient noise levels and image-recognition. The phone would also include a dedicated sensor to give compass readings, to determine which way the main wall of a building or room faces. Somehow, when people talk about phones that will one day "do everything," it's doubtful this is what they had in mind.
