New gadgets are incorporating more and more innovative technologies that are bound to make us lazier by the day. The Lazy Thumb cell phone conceptualized by Koo Ho Shin is such a device. A voice-activated mobile phone, the Lazy Thumb, does not require its user to strain the fingers to use it. Instead of a QWERTY keypad, this phone has only three buttons – one button for calling, the second button for checking missed calls and the third button to check voice mail. The person to person and the person to device communication is handled by the voice recognition technology of the phone. If every household gadget could be activated by simply talking and screaming, we would be reduced to big couch potatoes.
