Icono Phone Concept Could Soon Be Reality
Now this is a handset, quite literally. Inspired by the international gesture for “call me!”, the “Icono” concept phone by London-based designer Zinc Chan actually turns your thumb and pinkie into a speaker and microphone. You dial calls by drawing a unique pattern on the accompanying touchscreen.
According to Engadget Mobile:
As far fetched as the concept may seem, work related to induction charging, body area networks for transmitting audio across human skin, round LCDs, and any number of short length wireless solutions could very well make this concept a near-term reality.
