10 Atypical Cell Phones! 

cell_phone_keypad1

We live in a world where each one of us have an inner desire to be different – we wish to have something or the other which separates us from our friends, family, and identifies our personality. Mobile phones have become a necessity, the need to carry a unique cell phone has given a lot of business to the giant mobile companies.

Want to carry an exclusive cell phone? What better than to have one of the cell phones shown below?

37 Cool Cell Phone Concepts You Would Want To Have

 

Every year a few concept phones appear on various sites or presentation videos and make us wonder when will we ever get our hands on them. Probably never in some cases, considering that most of the cell phones we see are a little bit too futuristic to be created.

However, they inspire the phone manufacturers and if not built fully, a few features from here or there end up on a phone. Look at the Iphone, for example. Its touch screen function is at the moment rather common, whereas in 2005 this was considered more a science fiction feature and hard to implement. Seeing this happening makes you wonder what our phones will look like in a decade or so.

Alienware Android Phone Concept

The combination of Alienware’s gaming features and the flexibility of the Android platform is somehow the ideal phone for a gamer. However, as cool and interesting it might look, it is not likely that it would ever be created.

Mobile script

A contemporary mobile phone must maintain such functions as: mobility, constant Internet access, access to the documents, games and to give the best possibilities and means of communication and contact. A new generation mobile phone “Mobile script” gives all these possibilities.

AQUA

The water based cellphone AQUA created by Bon Seop Ku has, if you had doubts about it, a graphical UI and water display. The funny thing about it is that you can remove icons from the display by simply rubbing them. Besides this, it is known about it that it has a different battery than we are used to, a liquid type one.

Bend Mobile

The Bend Mobile concept by Andy Kurovets gives us the possibility to have two screens in one phone. The design is also something quite interesting, having an interesting but not exaggerated shape.

Finger Touching Wearable Mobile Phone

A wearable mobile device for enhanced chatting. It introduces a new wearable device that anyone can communicate with that is easier and lighter in mobile circumstances corresponding to the 3.5G, 4G communication standard. Human hand is the most basic communication method. For easier and simpler controls, it uses the instinctive input method “finger joint”. Excluding the thumb, each finger joint makes up twelve buttons, with “the knuckle button”, using the cell phone’s 3X4 keypad, likely being the most popular input method.

Kambala

The main idea of the project is to combine a mobile phone and wireless headphones. Material – a multilayered polymer, in which all electronic components are located inside in the form of layers. If you squeeze the phone, then in his mid appears earpiece, which is inserted into the ear. Thus the mobile phone turns into a headset. The inner surface of the phone is a continuous flexible screen, as well as a layer of sensors, which transmit the image from inside the phone on the outside – there is a layer of paint that can take any color – just like a fish flounder. When you wear this headset is automatically masked in your head and almost disappears. Instead of the joystick – sensitive strip on the edge of petal headphones.

Leaf

The name of this phone comes from its wonderful feature of harnessing solar energy through the solar cells that it incorporates on its front panel. With this one, you don’t have to worry too much about a low battery… if it’s sunny outside.

LG EXO

The EXO elegantly solves this by mimicking the natural durability of the human body. Similar to how the human body protects its internal organs with a complex skeletal system and resilient external skin, the EXO protects its delicate internal components with an external rubber skin and high strength exo-skeleton.

LINC

The challenge for this phone was to create a smart phone with all the connectivity and features you come to expect such as a cell phone, media player, web browser, GPS, downloadable content, Bluetooth, Wifi and the latest 3G network available as a service rather than a product.

The results are represented by less landfill waste. Consumers no longer have to purchase new phones each time there is an upgrade to the device. The user holds on to the LINC device for about a year, and when the next generation of hardware comes along, the user receives a new LINC in the mail. The previous LINC is harvested for valuable, reusable parts. All account details are handled wirelessly to ensure a smooth transition for the consumer between upgrades.

Mechanical Mobile

Mikhail Stawsky comes with an interesting idea of generating energy to charge this phones battery. Somehow looking like a stress ring, the phone is being recharged by turning your finger. Sounds like a pretty interesting idea… until you drop it a few times.

NEC Tag

The armband or bracelet phones are becoming a trend because of the easy way you can carry them around and also because they can be seen as a fashion item. This phone from NEC, called Tag, is included in this trend, having the possibility to be bent and put around your arm because of its flexible material.

Nokia 888 Concept Phone

This phone concept is one of the first I’ve seen and at the time I gazed at as if I saw 50 years into the future. Although it has a futuristic idea, like any Nokia it is stylish and simple. You can change its shape depending on the function you want to use.

The Gold Phone A collaborative effort by Vertu and The House of Boucheron. This one is crafted from solid gold, and as rumor goes, it took 1,000 hours to cut to shape, 700 hours to polish, and 500 hours to construct. Such effort for something which could similarly have been created by stomping on it.

Going phone free for December

 

I made a choice this week to turn off my cell phone. I must admit, it’s strange — the electronic toy I’ve carried around for five years feels oddly missing. I keep thinking I must check for emails – although the computer is always on. I should look at Facebook — although its always a great distraction, it adds little to my knowledge base or friendships. How strange to be attached to such a Machiavellian device that keeps me linked to a world of trivial noise and time wasting past times. And stranger still to actually miss it. We have a land line for phone calls, I can always call anyone for an unlimited amount of time. My marathon talk sessions really have no end in sight, other than being tethered to a base station. So why do I miss it?

I have a lifetime of projects to to do — I am recording a new CD that requires cover art and liner notes. I have ten fabulous new bottles to decorate for the Lwa. The altars need their annual cleaning. And lets not forget it’s December – the ubiquitous tree has to go up, we’re hosting a dinner party this weekend for 12 folks, and there is shopping to do, a new pup to house train, a new dress for the Legba fet to embroider. The list is endless and grows daily. So why am I missing this stupid little electronic habit?

Even in Haiti, the cell phone has become the de rigeur accessory. And not to put it lightly, but you must TWO, because the island has two separate coverage plans. If you want to talk to someone in the north or the south, you need to have a cell phone that covers those areas. And there’s no single plan to do that. My friend Jaxx Labrom carts around two phones to talk to her crews in the field. Talk about a ball and chain.

Perhaps it is as St. Augustine says, “a habit if not resisted, soon becomes necessity.” My husband was really upset that I chose to turn off the cell. “What will you do if you are out and get stuck?” he asked. Well, I thought, what did I do before I had a cell? I knocked on a door and asked to use the phone. One time, I had a tire blow out on the highway. I pulled over, got out, locked the car, climbed down the embankment and walked to the nearest gas station. It wasn’t a life crisis to ask for help in person. Maybe, we need to do more of that — you know, talk face to face, instead of cell to cell.

I was in the diner having lunch last week, watching a young couple at the next table. They were both staring fiercely — not at one another, but at their cell phones. My first thought was are they texting one another? — wierd.

I think we should all put down the cell phones — even for just one day. That might help the instant gratification issue we all seem to be having right now. We might even foster a dialog with one another — you know, have a National Day of Talking.

Think I’ll go walk the dog and then check my neighbor who just had a baby. In person, too.

 

Curitel PT-S170 twisting mobile phone

Another new mobile phone with a strange new form factor debuts in South Korea. SK Telecom, the largest mobile carrier in Korea, has released photos of an in-house designed handset, the Pantech & Curitel PT-S170. Details are limited, but the PT-S170 appears to be a camcorder phone that slides, folds and swivels, which in my book is just plain greedy.
 
I’m a big fan of twisty form factors, but surely this is taking the twist just a little too far? Oh, who am I kidding, I’d still buy the thing (sucker!)

Cell Phone Steers You With Heat and Cold

Cell Phone Steers You With Heat and Cold

When you’re in a strange city it’s easy to get lost, but you don’t want to miss the sights because you’re glued to a map or GPS device. German and Swedish researchers may have created a solution – a cell phone that can give you GPS directions simply by heating up or cooling down the handset.

It uses a Peltier device to change temperature – the warmer the unit, the more on-track you are, but take a wrong turn and it will cool down. This odd feature could also be used in other ways, like telling you how important a call is – if it’s your hot girlfriend it could get toasty warm to tell you to pick up, but if it’s your boss then it could ice up to tell you that it’s best avoided.

Like many modern couples, David and I recently realized our cell phone habit “needed a little work”. While the timing of it is coincidental, I can assure you it has nothing to do with New Year’s resolutions. It had a little to do with our family and friends constantly making comments about our inability to function without a phone in our hand. But it had a lot more to do with us just realizing we were going to get thumb arthritis weren’t spending much time talking to one another because we were busy pushing buttons.
 
My problems are exactly what you’d expect of an iPhone user. You know, Twitter, Facebook, Words With Friends, various other games, weather info, Googling every thought that comes into my head, etc. I don’t text a tremendous amount. (See also: Facebook, Twitter) but yeah, I’m always “checking something”. Heaven forbid one of my friends see a funny license plate and I not know about it immediately.
 
David, on the other hand, has a dumb phone. As in “not a smart phone”. He doesn’t care about anything besides texting and, on rare occasion, actually using the phone to speak to someone. (Yeah, I don’t know what that’s all about.) Plus, he’s a phone breaker. If you like specifics, he has a Samsung Rugby. The same phone used by construction workers and similar rough-and-tumble types. It’s virtually indestructible. This is his second one.
 
Anyway, his keys click. Like a constant tap-tap-tap all the live-long day. Not like my quiet touchscreen. You may not know this about me, but I do not deal well with repetitive sounds. Long story short, the key clicking was about to make me homicidal. I’d wake up thinking I heard him texting.
 
So, I decided to fight fire with fire. Or, annoyance with annoyance. I called it “aversion therapy”. Every time he’d be texting for an extended period of time, I would let out a very loud, long “hmmmmmmmm”. The written word can’t accurately convey the ridiculousness of the sound. 
 
At first, I think it made him homicidal. Then, somewhere along the line, it became funny. And, because I’m not a total douche, I knew I couldn’t expect him to be on his phone less if I wasn’t willing to do the same. So, as of late, we’ve decided to try cutting back.
 
Then, last night, we left the house. Upon arriving at our destination, we realized we’d both left our phones at home on their chargers. We got a little twitchy. I mean, what if the car breaks down? What if someone has a medical emergency and our moms can’t get in touch with us? How am I going to tweet about leaving my phone at home if my phone is at home? Should we go back home and get them?  (Then I found my Blackberry in my purse. It’s my work phone. I hate it, so I never attempt to text or go online with it. Basically, I have it to check emails when I’m away from the office. David and my boss are the only people with the number. My boss calls it the “Bat Phone”. Anyway, no danger of me using it unless there truly was an emergency.) So, for all intents and purposes, we were phoneless for over two hours.
 
While we were gone, a strange thing happened.
 
 
 
Nothing.
 
 
 
I had one Words With Friends notification. David had one text. Much to our chagrin, the world actually went on without us. Who knew?
 
Are we cured? Of course not. The goal was never to give up our phones. Just give up our utter dependence on them. It was only two hours, but I think it was a big step.
 

People say the boy on the right in the photo in yesterday’s post is using a cell phone. What do you think?

You may have already seen this. It’s a photo which  was taken in 1940 in Canada. Do you notice anything strange about it?

Weird Robots As New Japanese Cell Phones

A mobile phone that looks like a naked robot that can see, speak, hear and glow? It’s time to meet the new generation of robotic mobile phones; the Elfoids.

NTT Docomo and Qualcomm has paired up with robotics researchers from Osaka University and made this unique but amazing humanoid cell phone. It is a human-like mobile phone that has speakers and a camera in its head and lights in its chest that turns blue when in use and red when in standby. The reason why its shaped like a naked humanoid robot is because they wanted to create sort of a “physical presence” on a long distance communication.

So it is basically like you feel that you are talking to the person that you called when communication through the Elfoid, instead of feeling like your are talking to or through a metallic “box”. The Elfoid is actually a pocket-sized version of the robotic answering machine Telenoid R1, so for the Japanese market this is nothing new. If you wonder if the robots can move, the answer is no, but they are working on it, and soon it will be able to move its eyes, mouth, neck and arms.

Maybe a bit creepy, but we’ll see how it works out. Other weird stuff that you can find in Japan is this huge Cardboard Gundam.

 

 

 

A new Swedish study may have found a link between long-term, heavy cell phone use and the risk of brain tumors. A new study from the Swedish National Institute for Working Life published in the International Archives of Occupational and Environmental Health examined mobile phone user among 2,200 cancer patients between 20 and 80 years of age, and an identical number of control cases. Among the cancer patients, 905 were diagnosed

37121cofi_w.jpg

with malignant brain tumors, and about a tenth of those patients were heavy mobile phone users. “Heavy” mobile phone use was defined as 2,000 or more hours of mobile phone use, which the study says approximates using a mobile phone for an hour a day for ten years.The study also found an increase in cancer risk on the side of the head where the telephone was typically used: according the Kjell Mild, the research leader, the results indicate heavy phone users have a 240 percent increased risk of a malignant brain tumor on the side the head where they most often use their phone.

The Swedish study is the largest to date to study the long-term effects of mobile phones on the incidence of cancer. Mobile phones first went to market in Sweden in 1984, earlier than many other countries, so the population of heavy mobile phone users is proportionately larger than many other nations.

The study contradicts recent conclusions from the Dutch Health Council, which conducted an overview of research studies and concluded no research showed radiation from mobile phones and TV towers caused harm. A four-year British study published in January 2006, also found no link between long-term cell phone usage and the most common type of brain tumor.

One way to avoid any risk of developing brain cancer from use of mobile phones might be to use a handsfree headset to get the phone’s radio emitter away from the skull?of course, one might want to consider what parts of the body might be proximate to the phone’s emitter when using such a headset. – link

 

Malaysian man hit with $218 trillion phone bill

Posted by Xeno on April 10, 2006

A Malaysian man said he nearly fainted when he recieved a US$218 trillion phone bill and was ordered to pay up within 10 days or face prosecution, a newspaper reported Monday. Yahaya Wahab said he disconnected his late father’s phone line in January after he died and settled the 84 ringgit (US$23) bill, the New Straits Times reported.

But Telekom Malaysia later sent him a … ($218 trillion) bill for recent telephone calls along with orders to settle within 10 days or face legal proceedings, the newspaper reported. It wasn’t clear whether the bill was a mistake, or if Yahaya’s father’s phone line was used illegally after after his death.

home-hat-gfx.jpg

“If the company wants to seek legal action as mentioned in the letter, I’m ready to face it,” the paper quoted Yahaya as saying. “In fact, I can’t wait to face it,” he said.

Yahaya, from northern Kedah state, received a notice from the company’s debt-collection agency in early April, the paper said. Yahaya said he nearly fainted when he saw the new bill. Government-linked Telekom Malaysia Bhd. is the country’s largest telecommunications company. A company official, who declined to be identified as she was not authorized to speak to the media, said Telekom Malaysia was aware of Yahaya’s case and would address it. She did not provide further details. ” – llink

Is this a simple mistake … or did some drug/war money funneling take a wrong turn?

Sheep shearing via phone

Posted by Xeno on April 10, 2006

Shearing sheep in the future could be as easy as dialling a number on your mobile phone.

r48397_127509.jpg Researchers at the University of South Australia are looking for a bioactive substance which would cause wool fibres to break simultaneously at a predetermined time.

The new method of alternative shearing is still a few years away but researcher Michelle Hebard says the possibilities are endless.

“The animals would receive an implant, this may be in the ear at tagging time,” she said.

“That implant would contain a bioactive which would be activated through the mobile.

“You would just simply dial a certain number, that would then release the active over a period of perhaps a week and that active would then cause that window of weakness.” – link
