This sounds like something nasty, but actually it's just another phone concept. This time around, it's not a cell phone but a home phone. This phone is designer by Zinc Chan from London in the UK. The phone is based in two parts, an earphone and a microphone. By using the phone, your thumb and pinkie take the iconic telephone gesture. Users dial the number using a touchscreen and an animated path that is shown on it. People will start remembering numbers by the unique pattern rather than numbers. We don't know if this is a good thing really. The designer says that this creates a more emotional interaction between the phone and the user.
We're looking forward to when we actually won't need a telephone at all. It will just be implanted in your head or fingers, whichever happens first.
