As if this wasn’t creepy enough, the patent application indicates how this gizmo would work. Apparently, it would pick up sound through “fluctuations of muscle or tissue in the throat”.

Applying a tattoo isn’t the most painless process so its unknown if this would be permanent or need to be reapplied. This comes a few weeks after the firm announced they would be testing a new modular smartphone for customers. This is still in the early planning process but I can’t see this one getting very far.
