Designer Shikun Sun has put together a stylish mobile phone design idea for the blind - via Yanko Design:
DrawBraille Mobile Phone is one of the most compelling concepts that focus on making mobile phones easy-to-use for the blind. The entire UI and input keys are in Braille and even the touch panel reflects this system. The design and approach have a surreal finish to it and I am quite sure that Shikun Sun is on to something big with this!
Using the incredible foldability of a triangular pattern to the consumer’s advantage. Designer Patrick Sung used the idea to allow custom shapes to be wrapped, minimising excess packaging. The geometric pattern can also be folded into standard box sizes.
This week Phil Cuttance’s Faceture vases have been circulating the web - although the packaging above lacks the beauty and arty video to complement the design, it seems a real application of an interesting form. I hope this will be available soon!
