As the user is often in a hurry to answer a call, a small accident may arise. While answering the call, the user must first turn the cellphone to its obverse side, so it is not convenient to use. In view of that, the authors have designed a cellphone with no front or back side. After picking up the cellphone, the user just puts it next to the ear, and the gyroscope inside automatically detects the direction in which the cellphone lies. Thus, the user can answer a call or dial up freely, without worrying about whether the obverse side is facing the ear.
