DEPICT / home phone


“DEPICT” is a phone you can make a call from by simply writing down a word or drawing a picture on the touch screen.
This uses an intuitive interface and simple steps so that people who are unfamiliar with digital devices may use the product without difficulty or memorizing phone numbers.

People still need to search the contact list or remember the speed-dial number to make a phone call and making a phone call always involves numbers.
However, words are more efficient than numbers for people to remember and use.
Therefore, I suggest a new and efficient way of making phone calls using words or drawings instead of numbers.
