Phonto / Rekord und Recall-Design


Phonto, combining the phoneme “phon” and the word “photo”, produces story-telling pictures. It includes two parts: the picture-esque "record carrier" and the turntable-like device, which can play memories. Once you put a photo into Phonto, the sounds recorded when you snapped will be played, bringing you back to the good old days and those unforgettable touching moments. The user can retrieve the memorable picture of the moment with Phonto, and can record the surrounding sounds while waiting for the film to be developed. When you retrieve this picture again someday, put it into the Phonto player, and enjoy the wonderful memories.
