Connext is an all-in-one, flexible smart device that can morph its form to fit the application that it assumes. Combining OLED touch-screen technology with E-paper flexibility, this device can switch to become a mobile phone, computer, multimedia player, watch, physical avatar etc. – virtually and physically. Pressing one of the six Mode Keys instantly brings the user to the specific device function, and prevents the user from ‘getting lost’ in the interaction interface. Applications like the badge and the necklace modes extend this device’s purpose beyond personal productivity, and opens up a new scenario of true physical interaction between individuals. Have your technology, and wear it too.
