This phone is not yet a reality, but it may one of the most stylish imaginary gadgets I have seen in some time. It seems a bit rubik-cubish, but also contains some practicality. Every face of the phone carries a keypad, microphone, and speaker. The part you touch first gets active while all other edges are in lock mode. The Nonobject book that inspired this fictitious phone will be published in Q3 of 2007.
Disclaimer : Remember folks this vision is suppose to stretch your imagination. Please avoid arguing with your nearest cellphone dealer about its’ release date.
The non·object book is the first of its kind – the first of a new genre we call Design Fiction. In the same way that sci-fi movies and fictional tales stretch your imagination, our hope is to take you on a journey into the future of design and inspiration. We will share stories and concepts that offer a new point of view, a new way of thinking, a new way forward. Of course, as with all fiction, some of our ideas may seem improbable – even impossible. Don’t worry, we bought the tickets. All you have to do is enjoy the ride.
