Nokia Patent Hints At a Wearable Input Sleeve That Reacts To Human Skin

Nokia is really getting their ass handed to them in the smartphone market, and this remote input sleeve patent hints at one way the company is thinking about the future.

The idea, of course, is to use wearable electronics to control the UI across a range of gadgets—but I'll be dammed if I need to wear a glove or some sort of band aid to control my devices. It's just not practical. On the other hand, glasses or a ring might be ok, because these are things you might wear all the time. [Unwired View]
