Skin And Phones

Is there any worse feeling in the history of earth, than when you're at a job interview or a funeral, and a new text comes in but you can't take out your phone to read it? Well apparently, Research In Motion is working on a way around it - SkinDisplay! When a text comes in, you'd just press your finger against your phone, and it would leave a temporary imprint of the message directly on your skin. No one would give you the death glare during a wedding for weirdly examining your hand, right? Genius!
