Esphere/mobile phone / multi mobile phone

Esphere/mobile phone
Esphere/mobile phone

The main concept is to propose a new interface of a multi mobile phone which communicates by sensing the motion of a finger. Commonly a user has controlled a device by pushing a button or touch screen. In this concept phone, the user can command the interface by moving a finger inside the circle. Motion sensors are located around the ring, which can read and convert the action to data.

The advantage of this interface is to communicate more accurately what a user wants and recognize various commands by using a simple movement, for it could gain more data than pushing or touching a button.
