In a few years, we may all be wearing our phones on our wrists, not around our ears. That’s the promise of the Nokia 888 communicator concept phone, which is gaining recognition in global design and communications industry journals.
Created by Tamer Nakisci, a Turkish student, for the Nokia Benelux Open Design Awards, this phone offers a malleable interface that can be bent, twisted and wrapped into different shapes like a wristband. Wow! That’s even cooler than my parent’s old 8-track cassette player. By the way, Mr. Nakisci’s favorite song is rumored to be “Twist and Shout.”
This phone uses liquid batteries, provides speech recognition, a flexible touchscreen and touch-sensitive body cover. Plus, its simple programmable body mechanism can change forms for different situations.
