PLY mobile phone concept by KDDI
KDDI au just announced their PLY mobile phone concept inspired by sandwiched plywood. Each section is tabbed to core functions like a dialpad, keyboard, gamepad, touchscreen, pico project, and printer! This is a dope idea! Instead of cramming together tons of keys on one keypad or giving individual keys a bunch of different functions - this provides a simple clean solution to a multifunctional device.
Will it ever see the light of day? I believe so. Miniaturizing some of those proposed functions seems beyond what science and technology can achieve now but never underestimate seasoned designers and crafty engineers.
