Mathmos Flashing Badge Lets You Know When Your Phone Rings

The badge flashes as your phone rings. Okay, it almost seems obsolete, but it’s still a cool gadget. But think about it, if you're deaf, this could be a good way to get alerts when you get text messaged. It would also be handy in class, in a meeting, during a concert or at the doctor when your phone is expected to be off.

I think this flashing badge would be cool if pinned your shirt with five of them so when your phone rings, you’re a light beacon.

The idea is to no longer miss calls when your phone is silent. Don’t we have vibrate for that? Okay, we might have occasions when the phone is in the back of your car, but, uh, you still can't pick up the phone then. Alright, it could be in your gym bag, and on silent, or you could be in a meeting.

Oh I got it! This is perfect for clubbers who can’t hear their phones ring, nor can they feel them 'cause of the pumping bass. Now that makes sense!
