No its not a new smartphone from HTC which has been labelled the next iPhone killer, it is a hammer from designer Ronen Kadushin, a 25mm laser cut steel hammer, it looks like it is compatible with the majority of other smartphones as well as the iPhone.
I guess we will let Ronen explain why he designed the iPhone Killer.
“Pitch” (in a Steve Jobs style product announcement): Whenever a new hand held device, or new exciting
smartphone hits the market, a questions roars through the internets, tech blogs and news: Is this the iPhone
killer? The answer is always…well…not quite, not yet….
So I was thinking, maybe these guys who make these devices are not looking at the right place for that
iPhone killer. Why don’t I scratch that dream product itch, and transform this buzzword into a real product
that it’s soul purpose is to do what it claims to be…..
I’d like to introduce you to the iPhonekiller….It’s amazing…
It is an open design, you can download it from my website, produce and use it. It is 1.6 Kg , 25mm ( 3.5 lbs,
1 inch) of precision laser cut steel, with a fantastic 36 cm wood ax handle. You can just feel the awesome
power of it when you hold it in your hand..It’s amazing…….
The iPhonekiller is a statement about current tech products and personalities status , worshiped by the media and public, along with my possibilities to react and criticize that in a humorous way, with an Open Design.
It looks like Ronen is selling the ‘iPhone Killer’ hammer, as his website says price upon request, we have no idea how much they are lets hope they don’t cost as much as an iPhone.
