Cheers To Finger Power!

Cheers To Finger Power!

Mind you, this is not a “Green” concept and neither does it claim to be “Eco Friendly”. It’s just a helpful solution for a tricky situation. The situation being: you running out of juice on your mobile phone. So what do you do? Remove the battery from the back of the phone; give it a few good turns around your index finger and its gathered enough power to last you a conversation or a safe trip to your charger and electric point.

This Floater's for the Eye

This Floater’s for the Eye

Sometimes you’re looking around and you get a speck of something in your eyeball sight line. It goes all over with your eye as you move your glazzies about! This is sort of like that, only it’s a cellphone. Designer Mac Funamizu totaled the amount of time he’s got his cellphone sitting on his desk for all to see to be 80% of his day. Lots of time for aesthetic beauty and interactive loveliness. This phone aims to please.

Sweet Dreams Are Meant To Evolve

Sweet Dreams Are Meant To Evolve

You can bicker about its form, specs and sensibilities later, but first lemme give you the details on this awesome HTC evolve. It’s a concept tablet computer that features a “concave side” ergonomic body design. It Features a stylus pen that will help to draw and execute renders in a practical and efficient way, especially if you use programs like Alias Sketchbook pro or Adobe Photoshop. An extra OLED touch screen with pre-programmable buttons pops out from the left side of the tablet, adding to the functionality.

The Best Brick for the Job

The Best Brick for the Job

This right here is a cellular phone that will last you five years. After that, it’s just a twist and about a minute of dissembling and you’ve got an 85% recyclable stack of materials on your hands. Kind of nice, yes? Why is it all green, you ask? So that the plastic can be melted down and re-molded without any discoloration! Super neat.

Record It! Edit It! Crank It!

Record It! Edit It! Crank It!

Actually, from the looks of it, Crank It might be what you’re doing in between recording it and playing it. Check this thing right here out. It is a cellphone, but that’s the simplest of the things it does. It not only records music, it not only edits music, it not only plays that same music you just recorded and edited, it can do all this without accessing a separate computer.

Keeping in Touch - Get it?

Keeping in Touch – Get it?

This project right here is called the “Squibble Portable Braille Interface” and it’s basically a text-message machine for the seeing-impared. Or if you’re able to read Braille, you’re in luck because this’d be an amazing pocket-chatter. Love the implications!

Sticky Phone

Sticky Phone

The concept behind the Sticker Phone is quite simple; most of us tend to place our mobile phone near windows for better signal reception. So this concept takes it a step further by adding a solar panel to the back of the phone and giving it a slight arch so that it can stick (via suction) to the window glass for some sunshine. The phone is made with polysiloxane (silicone) and can be made feasible if some tries it.

Fully Analog Cellphone Charging

Fully Analog Cellphone Charging

Just give this thang a spin! This is the “Mechanical Mobile” by Mikhail Stawsky. He’s made it super simple to just spin around down the street while you’re waiting for that call from Mother. Two different models offer two different methods for power generation. Either spin the entire thing around your finger, or crank, crank, crank the tip. Both will leave you gladly accepting incoming calls.

Phone Fashion

Phone Fashion

The trend in concept phones these days is turning retro, which is why we have the “Dial” reminisce the era of the round-dials on phones. The difference however lies in the present concept being touted as a fashion accessory that can be crafted in the metal of choice; giving you the luxury of being, chic, sporty, or uber-rich. A projected light beam in the inner circle impersonates the rotary dial, but to dial a number you need to simply touch it. Quite interesting.

A Very Social Phone

A Very Social Phone

It was about time that someone came up with the concept of a phone that was dedicated to social networking. YD’s resident designer Shane Crozier is on top things and has his finger on the pulse. 31337 (Elite) Phone connects to Facebook and Twitter and hooks up to the contacts to fill up the address book. Usual suspects like camera, speakerphone, music, video and internet functionality have been removed for the sake of functional transparency and ease of use. This minimal phone is good for inbound and outbound calls!

The New Clarity

The New Clarity

The Mac. He is back. He’s clear again. He is so clear this time, you’ll just want to get out the windex just to see if the glass is actually there. Two concepts. One is a phone, the other is a desktop computer. Made with the real intention of creating something straight out of a sci fi for the greater good of your eyeballs and future humanity.

The Yin And Yang In Phones

The Yin And Yang In Phones

Maybe it’s the Pagan Symbols that have inspired it or the fact that Yin and Yang need to co-exist in every design form, but the truth is Love Connection Mobile Phone Concept doesn’t remind me of the relationship between male and female; neither the dent, nor the projectile! It however is a sweet attempt at being something different as an MP3 player + Phone + Camera + Entertainment System.

Music and Time On Your Wrist

Music and Time On Your Wrist

We’ve evolved from Walkman to iPod (plus whatever else there is, let’s be honest) and from wrist watch to cellphone-held-clock. Now. What would have happened if instead of the clock merging with the cellphone, the clock merged with the music device? We’ve got wrist tunes, contact!
