Haptic Phone Raises Buttons As You Need Them

image_16345_largeimagefile Haptic Phone Raises Buttons As You Need ThemI’ve seen my fair share of strange gadget designs in my day and while some are more outlandish than others, they are usually still within the realm of possibility, however far-fetched. I’m not sure if I can say that about this phone.

The Haptic Concept phone features touch-sensitive controls across its entire face, but actual physical buttons can protrude out when you need to dial a few digits. This is quite a bit different than the “dynamic” user interface you find on the iPhone or on a Windows Mobile phone, because those are still virtual keys. The Haptic phone is supposed to magically create real keys, only to take them away as they become less useful.

Incredible. Literally.
