Japan’s NTT DoCoMo has demoed a new smartphone which features a rather interesting user interface, the Grip UI, which works when you touch the side of the smartphone.
On either side of the device there are pressure sensors, and a custom user interface which responds to the pressure on these sensors placed on the side of the device, have a look at the brief video of it in action below.
At the moment the handset is just a concept, but it could be developed to work with complex gestures as well as simple ones, whether or not it will make it into production remains to be seen.
