New Cellphone Concept. Dialling through keyholes
Spotted on Gizmodo, one of the stranger cell phone concepts to come along.
Designed by branco Lukic, the Tarati is a phone with no keys, you pass your fingers through the keyholes to dial.
In his own words: Tarati enables the user to connect with others by passing fingers, in order, through key holes. This action of dialing alone is a more magical experience and, hence, more indicative of what's really happening beyond the visible realm. ... Tarati beckons the user to "touch" someone without physically touching a single key. Its design reflects human connectivity in a less material/mechanical, more sensual, way.
