HTC 1 Concept

by Johan on July 12, 2010

Designer Andrew Kim has creatively designed the conceptual smartphone which supposedly hails from HTC. Known as the HTC 1, the phone concept is powered by a new Sense mono user interface which is touted to deliver a cleaner, more thoughtful, high-end approach. The phone also features a silver-coated brass housing and a built-in UV light, which will zap germs hanging out on the surface as you juice up your phone. More

The Aeolus Phone concept by industrial designer Cyrene Quiamco allows users to charge their cell phone anywhere at any time. The concept uses renewable energy such as wind power and solar power to charge its integrated battery. The Aeolus features a power generating fan that will capture even the slightest breeze to produce energy. There is also a built-in solar panel to recharge the phone’s battery. Cyrene Quiamco claims that the phone can be built from renewable materials. What’s more, the Aeolus can also be attached to a bicycle or on the window of a car with a special tripod in order to capture more energy while you are on the go. More

Eco-Friendly Cell Phone That Runs On Coke

The Bio battery is an ecologically friendly energy that generates electricity from carbohydrates (currently sugar) and utilizes enzymes as the catalyst. It is claimed that the Bio battery has the potential to operate three to four times longer on a single charge than conventional Lithium batteries. [Dezeen]

The phone features thousands of micro pins that dynamically raise and lower forming a tactile surface for all to get touchy with. This brilliant idea was inspired by the little raised dot on the number 5 on almost all mobile keypads. Too bad, it is only a concept. More

Kyocera’s Kinetic Powered OLED Phone

Kyocera's Kinetic Powered OLED Phone

Here’s what may be the future of cell phones from Kyocera. The concept phone can be folded like a wallet and when it unfolds it can either reveal the keypad or transform into a bigger screen. During calls the phone can remain folded but it can unfold to reveal the OLED screen and QWERTY keyboard anytime. Designed by Susan McKinney, it has a flexible keyboard with shape memory, so that the keys pop up for use but can blend into the surface when not being used. The phone also uses small piezoelectric generators that derive energy from human interaction. The more you fiddle with the phone, the more energy is generated.  Awesome. Green. Tech! More
