Imagination takes flight with these futuristic cell phone concepts. These mind-boggling phones may be a long time coming, but there is no need to wait for our summer promotion on cell phone accessories.
Human creativity takes ingenious twists and turns with these eye-popping cell phone designs.
Sony Ericsson FH: A central pivot lets the device flip vertically to serve as a phone and rotate sideways to become a viewing screen. The device can also be split into two to become an intercom or walkie-talkie.
Nokia 888: The phone features liquid batteries, speech recognition, a flexible touch screen and a touch-sensitive body cover. It can be rolled up, bent, clipped, and personalized to take on different forms. The cell phone shapes or e-motions (electronic motions) can be sent to other Nokia 888 users so their phones can take on these forms.
Nokia CLIPit: Its compact, lightweight design allows it to be clipped onto an outfit or bag, connected to earphones as a music player, and attached to the ear as a Bluetooth headset. A steel touch screen controls calls, texts, and songs. It can be attached to Lumalive fabric screens in two sizes – 3’ for phone functions and 12’ for tablet or laptop functions.
LG HiFi Folding Phone: The phone curves into a headset, with two speakers in the inner layer and a touch screen on the outer layer.
Nokia Morph: Nanotechnology makes this phone elastic, transparent, and strong. Nanoflowers on the surface make it self-cleaning and anti-corrosive by repelling water, dirt, and fingerprints. Nanograss on the surface absorbs solar energy to power and recharge the batteries. Nanosensors monitor the environment and lead to healthier selections.
Mobile Script: A large collapsible screen is stored inside the sleek, elongated body. The screen can be used to view movies or type messages without adding bulk or weight to the device.
Kambala: This multilayered polymer phone transforms into an earphone by popping the center piece and clipping onto the ear, where it becomes virtually invisible by blending with your skin color.
Kyocera Eos: It includes a display that can be folded, buttons that pop up when needed, and batteries that are charged by kinetic motion.
Eye: A transparent LCD display makes this phone a useful GPS navigator and an interactive gaming screen and control. It also scans people to pull up their social media profiles, buildings to show related information on the internet, and shopping items for price comparisons.
Finger Touching: The device fits like a bracelet on the wrist, and projects the keyboard onto four fingers (for inputting text when chatting).
Connext: This device can physically and virtually transform into six modes, including cell phone, computer, multimedia player, watch, badge, and necklace.
Elastic Phone: A flexible keypad made of collapsing bands can be shifted all around the screen to optimize its different functions.
Edge: A transparent touch screen keypad illuminated by internal LEDs slides out from the screen and is tucked away for maximum portability.
Tenna: This detachable ear piece and USB mini port is a screen-less phone based on voice recognition that can be used for calling and texting. It can also be plugged into devices with screens (such as digital cameras and handheld gaming devices) to turn them into cell phones for scheduling, internet browsing, and managing of contacts.
