Woody Phone

The MINIMA is a classic example of how important form is in the design process. The adorable lattice style for keypads and the wood finish, relay a completely organic look. Specific attention to details like the camouflaged secondary display on the outer flip and bamboo look, make this an object of desire. It looks like a refined version of the Maple Phone, don’t you think?

    The keypad looks VERY confusing. 1, 4, 7 buttons and 3, 6, 9 buttons are in line but the 2, 5, and 8 buttons are not vertically in line with one another. The numbers on the keypad are a total afterthought – not something you want to mess with especially on a phone.

    How does someone hide or camouflage a display on a piece of wood? Is there transparent wood???

    It looks very concepty to me however you can get transparent (very thin) displays so it is possible.

    No there obviously is no such thing as transparent wood. :)

      They make clocks that do this already, but the wood is very thin and the LEDs behind are very bright. It's possible on a bigger scale, but probably not with the precision of LCD or OLED pixels such as cell screens need.

      Also agreed with MS6 above, texting with those buttons? Ha.

      With all that said, I'd buy one if they had a normal keypad layout.

  • It essentially solved my dilemma, thank you!

  • WHY? says:

    That’s Effed. This attempt at changing one of the most well known interface mappings in existence is definitely equivalent to shooting the product in the foot.

    And to Patt: Phsychologists would be fighting over the publishing rights if you still had that outlook after using this phone for a week.

    so, how do we buy the minima phone?

  • Comfort comes in the form of the beautifully
    upholstered reclinable deck seats and bow seats, and
    a drive. Given a choice, our primates will eat nothing but bananas.

  • Here are the top ways that the assistant can help
    customers find you right when they need you:. You should
    always keep yourself abreast with the latest happenings in the seo

  • I also like that they are wrapped individually
    so I may open the package and take out what I need without worrying about re-wrapping the
    rest to prevent freezer burn. Adding a pinch of baking soda to tomato
    sauce will reduce the acidity. They are forms of storage that allow us to store and
    protect our food from bacterial growth and spoilage.

  • Since business owners lack financial skills of the accountant, a marketing
    service is important for good communication. You always want to
