Designer Kamihara Hideo has unveiled a new mobile phone concept inspired by the cross-cut grains of plywood. His mobile phone concept is a quite simple, but stylish slider with the sectional wooden feel of layered plywood.
The PLY Mobile Phone features hardware control built into the “grains” of the device, a range of cascading buttons that offer thumb-friendly control functionality. The business end of the phone is exposed with a simple slide, where the alpha-numeric keypad is hidden when at rest.
Nowadays software and services are the attractive qualities, and most of consumers won’t like innovative, but the unpractical PLY Mobile Phone Concept as lifestyle without services is coming to the end. [Iida via MocoLoco]
