I often think, how wonderful it would be if I had a device that was just everything, everything that I wanted – but in the ever-changing technological world thinking is such a waste of time, ain’t it? You must be wondering, what on earth am I writing, when there are so many multifunctional phones around – yes, they are in abundance, but Connext from James Zhang is just not one of them – it’s truly all encompassing.
The concepts exceptional ’cause of its outright quality – mould it the way you want, for the function you want. Combining OLED touch-screen display with E-paper flexibility, it’s a mobile phone and in a switch a computer, a multimedia player, a watch and the list is endless… oh gosh, one imperative missed – its also a gaming console.
It does away with the complexities of the interaction interface, by pressing one of the six Mode Keys there you are on the desired function. Connext’s applications like the badge and the necklace modes take its purpose beyond personal productivity, into the realm of personal communication and connectivity. If the concept can be a reality someday who knows my search could end, eventually.
