aROUND / Telephone

aROUND
aROUND

From the rotatable touch screen and receiver to the revolving body of the telephone, the concept of the phone is to make people feel no difference when they use it in different directions. The soul of this phone is the ring-like touch screen. It can be set to show time or note when it’s not used. When you touch the screen, it would response you with a dialing interface. You can slide the interface to the left or right around the screen. The loudspeaker is on the top of the body. When you prefer to use it, you just simply press the button in the middle and press it again when you want to finish. The receiver is wireless.
