Mobile phones have really come a long way from when they were first introduced. From the old mobile phone that easily weighed a ton and looked like a brick to the sleeker and more futuristic models, we have seen quite a number of interesting and sometimes odd mobile phone designs along the way. The future looks as promising for intriguing designs, if these concepts are to be taken as an indication.
Eye Mobile Phone –A
Let’s start with the Eye Mobile Phone –A, the concept phone which comes with a see through LCD touch screen and is ultra-lightweight. You can use the phone to take picture in real view and find out how a dress will suit you before you even try it out. Another highlight of the phone is the amazing 3D gaming experience it provides.
Designed by Jung DaeHoon, the Dial Phone is a mobile phone you wear around your wrist like a watch or bracelet. When in use, it projects light beams onto your skin, displaying the numbers on the rotary dial so that you can simply touch the numbers to dial them.
You may not be enthusiastic about this design if you tend to keep your phone somewhere and forget about it only to turn the entire house upside down at regular intervals. The Chamelephone actually has the ability to take on the texture and color of the surface it is placed on, becoming totally invisible save for the green button at the bottom left hand corner of the phone. We shudder to think what would happen if the makers had decided against placing that button there.
LG Flutter Concept Phone
The Flutter concept phone was an entry to LG’s Design the Future contest. The designers probably took a cue from all those futuristic Hollywood movies. The Flutter Concept Phone looks like any other normal mobile phone at first. However, press a button and voila, it opens up like a hand held fan to reveal the flexible OLED touch screen that has the ability to scroll radically.
Maybe something that was designed after one of those treasure hunt movies filled with clues and puzzles, the Cryptex Mobile looks like well, a cryptex, sans any display or buttons. What you have instead are a bunch of numbers which you would need to twist and turn in order to access the phone and dial a number. While the absence of a screen may deter some users from buying it, others who get a kick out of deciphering puzzles would have a blast with this mobile design.
Mobile phone concepts are increasingly creative and range from outrageous to incredible ideas. The 5 mobile phones mentioned above continue to be the most unusual mobile phone designs we have come across so far.
