The Shape of Things to Call…

Yes yes we know, home phones are nearly a thing of the past. With more and more of us opting for our mobile phones as our sole means of telecommunications, the home phone has almost gone the way of the VCR. Designer Zinc Chan believes the home phone still has life in it and has concocted this fun and beautiful means to communicate. Forget those pesky numbers usually associated with making a call, with Zinc’s design you simply draw the associated shape of the person you want to call and the phone dials them. Looking a lot like a constellation map, the shapes that you draw are merely points of light with numeric assignments. As if that feature was not interesting enough, Zinc also created a handset that attaches directly onto your thumb and pinky creating the Hawaiian “Shaka” hand gesture. Aloha!
