A smartphone prototype provides testament to the importance of looking at a ubiquitous product with a fresh set of eyes.
Kristen Ulrich Larsen has reimagined the smartphone by tearing up the assumptions of what one should look like. Her Flip Phone tries to change the flattening experience of user interaction that has become commonplace with the ubiquity of touchscreen smartphones.
The unique form and unique way of interacting with it is supposed to set it apart from other smart phones, but more importantly it’s supposed to add value for the user, making the experience of using a smartphone even more exciting and engaging
The phone features 3 screens and is designed to be as modular as possible in order to fit in with the varying uses that people now utilises their smartphones for.
