The Butterfly Cell Phone by Andrew Kim

The Butterfly is a social networking device designed to give the optimal experience of being connected to an educational life-style for the teenage audience. There are 3 big factors of the Butterfly that make it a unique product: the design, connectivity and interaction.

The Butterfly has a very unique design. The device uses a “tilting” slide mechanism that elegantly reveals the display from below the player which slides out at a comfortable 15 degree angle. All “physical buttons were removed and replaced with a touch screen on the front of the player. The touch screen interacts with the main screen to give a seamless interface between the device and the user. The device is also coated with silver nanoparticles to prevent collection of bacteria.

The device also functions as a GSM phone with Wi-Fi connectivity. The connection to the web opens up to many opportunities. Students will be able to get the most recent updates from the school, get access to school resources, IM friends, share media, email and browse the web. Built-in organization programs will be also automatically updated to match the official school calender.

  • Dear developers, amazing cellphone novelties. But nothing REALLY new, aside from childish fantasies. Where is the cerebron – the whole phone on a chip built into the brain? Controlled by a combination of mental & electronic signal thru semantic eye blinks?

    Ok to those people who want this phone, YOU CAN’T HAVE IT. It’s a CONCEPT nothing more. To the obviously incredibly rich girl whose father just seems to like to spoil her, a little friendly advice… typing in all caps is annoying and makes it seem like your voice is even whinier and stuck up than your statement already does.

      She’s not rich buddy, i’ve met girls like her. Her dad probably makes 90 grand a year, and goes broke giving his held-back daughter everything she wants. Then she’ll fail outta college and end up giving handjobs to drug dealers for crack money by 25.
