I always believed that most technological innovations are made keeping the lazy users in mind. When the wireless phones were invented, it saved the lazy inhabitants of the planet the trouble of walking all the way to pick up the receiver of the wired landline phone to make or receive a call. Now to make us lazier, we need not even lift the fingers of our hand to type on the keypads of the mobile phone. The voice activated cell phone concept has been created to give our busy fingers some rest. Koo Ho Shin of New York has created such a device that has been aptly named – the Lazy Thumb.
Instead of having a key pad with a number of buttons, this concept phone has only three buttons – first for calling, second for missed calls and a third for messages. There are three sliding plates devoted to each of the buttons with embedded OLED screens and an LCD screen under the three plates for showing messages and giving directions.
