Check out this cool concept mobile phone from design firm Chocolate Agency.
The design consists of just 4 layers, a printed circuit board, extruded polycarbonate, recycled titanium, and a wrap around flexible haptic LED touchscreen.
Not exactly a novelty considering most touchscreen, tech-toting mobile phones out in the market. What made it stand out though is the proposed materials in making it. By minimizing materials, the design is highly sustainable. However, the tech needed for making this possible isn’t exactly cheap, making it a thingamajig only the Steve Jobs and Bill Gates of this world can afford (and you can’t even count on either Stevie and Billy buying this because the former already owns the entire iPhone production and the latter the MicroSoft Zune). Still, it doesn’t take away the fact that this is a very cool concept. Anyone has a decent guess when they can make this go mass production? I sure hope it’s in our lifetime.
The wrap around screen allows for endless user interface possibilities not to mention bezeless picture/movie taking and watching.
If that weren’t enough to challenge the iPhone, how about a 7mm wafer thin form factor, 3 megapixel camera, and a 2 minute recharge time!
This is a stunning looking concept, I would love to see something like this go into production.
