The Simple Cellphone

The Simple Cellphone

Here is another vintage look at what cellphones can grow to become. Yes, transparent screens are a must and so is the passion for expansive displays. With Google Glasses and other such innovative tech coming around the bend, we have to pause and rethink our perception of communication. Maybe the future of phones will no longer be a candy bar or clamshells. What do you think?

More On The Curves

More On The Curves

Is there something more comforting about holding a phone in your hand that feels and looks curvy? Perhaps yes, and this is why phones like the VEGA, inspired by the design and innovation “brionvega”, demand so much attention. According to the designer, the display is curved for a better grip and use and the black and white OS is super cool. The color function is active only for the video – photo modes and the phone is crafted from polycarbonate.

A Silky Disposition

A Silky Disposition

You have to hand it to Samsung and Apple’s forward thinking design team that made it acceptable for us to have phones that are a cross between a tablet and well … a phone! While the new forms give us a gawky looking device, The Bionic Silkworm Inspired Phone takes us back to the basic shape of an ergonomic handset. Designed to make both children and the elderly comfortable with its use, the LED display and infrared sensor technology make it as tech-savvy as it gets. So which will you prefer… a phablet or a phone?

OMG, Yes Another iPhone 6 Concept Phone!

By now Jony Ive and his brigade must be having a good laugh at the number of iPhone 6 concepts doing the rounds. But I must admit that with each passing new idea, the designing and aspects are getting refined and eloquent. Who knows one of these may trigger an inspiration for Ive!

Yet Another iPhone 6

Yet Another iPhone 6

One of the reasons why many people buy a fender for their iPhone is that the back surface tends to scratch pretty easily, especially in the iPhone 5. Designer Matt Hughson envisions the iPhone 6 to come designed with an integrated aluminum outer frame, which creates a protective lip for the front & back of the phone. This provides improved protection for your screen & camera.
