MagniPhone / mobile phone


Magniphone is a mobile phone design for elderly people. It uses the latest technology of transparent phone which makes mobile phones from conductive glass. I combine the new technology with convex lens principle to add a new function of magnifier. By combining the tools that elderly people usually use and the convenience of mobile phones, this design will be easy to realize and become a part of our daily life.
The usage of Magniphone has the same way with smart phones. Only the different part is that when you turn off the screen monitor, it will turn into a magnifier. It is very intuitive to reduces the inconvenient of elderly to read.
