Toshiba scientists have come up with a unique way to make your cellphone vibrate. A pressure sensor inside a flip phone will detect how much pressure is being put on the phone and will adjust the vibration for an incoming call accordingly. So if you're some snobby emo-kid wearing women's jeans, the phone will vibrate lightly. If however you threw it in your baggy sweatpants' pocket, it will shake and rumble until you answer it or the richter scale picks it up. I'm down since I'm always missing calls due to subtle vibrations from my cellphone. The technology is designed for flip-phones currently, but other ideas are apparently in the works.
