Motorola Patents Shocking Silent Alert

Article Comments  28

Motorola has filed for a patent on a new type of silent alert for mobile devices. Noting that vibrating alert is not truly silent, Motorola has proposed a system that uses mild electrical stimulation instead of a vibrating motor. The user wears a device that can deliver a mild electric charge next to the skin. The phone will wirelessly activate this device to alert you to new calls, messages and more. Motorola has not announced any products with this technology, nor have any even been proposed yet. It is interesting to note that Motorola first developed the vibrating alert that this system is designed to replace.

So let me see if I understand this correctly. Motorola recognizes its vib is truly not silent and instead of fixing that by just have the phone go completely dead they decide to ignore that and have some stupid armband or w/e shock you.
well at least it doubles as a defibrillator....

yeah and its going to be great when they malfunction and just start to shock the $hit out of you... i can see it now, "Motorola is currently in a lawsuit, involving their new product, the shocker. A un-named customer was continuously shocked by their...

Not to mention that this thing is in TWO parts - so if this gets implemented, there's a SECOND gadget that you have to bring with you along with the phone itself. This is completely retarded.

I'll start the class action lawsuit now!

Who would you represent? Customers injured when the phone discharges the whole battery in an instant? Or the families of cellphone thieves who were killed by the Moto TAZR? Wink

I don't know about anyone else...but isn't this quite possibly the STUPIDEST idea ever? Screw the class action suit...what about people's health? Hell, with my heart this'd kill me.
