I think it would attract too much attention. I already get people asking questions when I use the Reader in public. It would be far too much trouble to cart a semi-naked man about. Even more trouble than paper books.

And it would be somewhat worse in cold weather, couldn't read it (or risk losing your reader).

Timex already made the first step:



This watch is uniquely designed in such a manner that it can mould as one of your nails.
Yes that’s right! Forget wearing watches on your wrist from now on as this watch snugly fits on your nail. Don’t mistake this watch to be a mere nail art as it not only displays the time but also lights up in the dark, making it easy to read time in the night. Press the end of your thumbnail, and the watch will light up for you. Timex in collaboration with Core77 brings in this out of the box design idea.

Now that is nice. I would get one. I can't wear a watch on my wrist. It always gives me a heat rash, no matter the type of band. When will they be available?

...Timex hasn’t spoken a word on its price or availability as yet, so let’s wait and watch for the price of this tiny new nail watch.

Let me know and I'll go with you. As far as I'm concerned, the only thing better than a functioning watch tattoo would be an implanted chip that received the atomic clock signals.
