Future Telephones

You think your Razr’s cool? When it comes to mobile phone design, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

Clamshells and candy bars be gone. Tomorrow’s cell phones may bear little resemblance to the snap-open handsets or even the sleek, flat rectangular phones we sport today.

Visionaries from design firm Pilotfish and sensor maker Synaptics have created a phone that has no buttons. It’s operated with gestures. Designer Manon Maneenawa has built a phone that can be converted into an alarm clock or a wrist watch. Sweden’s GoldVish just began selling a phone for $1.26 million that features diamonds and a secret compartment.
