A Far Out Design: Cellphone Has 4-Sided Keypad

Sometimes you just can’t be bothered to figure out which side is the front of your phone. That’s why the CUin5 phone has a keypad, speaker, and microphone on all of its six sides. This is the latest “Design Fiction” created by branko Lukic, and while it has the full numerical keypad no matter which way you grab this phone, you’ll notice that there is no display anywhere. Not quite the cell phone shuffle, but pretty close.

The CUin5 cell phone will be including in branko Lukic’s upcoming book, non.object. Yeah, totally strange, but Lukic apparently knows what he’s doing considering that he spent five years at frog Design and then went on to create the TaylorMade r500 golf club and Zyliss salad spinner.
