1. Bio – A Incredible Flip Phone [link]
Here’s a flip phone that could put the “cool” back into clam shells. When a phone call or an email comes to you, “bio” informs you by lifting the edge of its cover. And if you touch it lightly, the cover automatically opens to “B” position. Its movement is not strong, but it helps your action gently. The cover is made of elastomer that is inserted with actuators like artificial muscles. When you enjoy web browsing or movies, the cover is turned to the backside, like a magazine held by one hand. You can hold “bio” tight with the rounded cover as a grap and operate it with buttons that appear on the cover.
On Mozilla Labs, there is an interesting topic about “Design the Future – Concept Series” which is an open forum for sharing your ideas, expertise & vision for the future of the Web, the Mozilla project and Firefox.
