Rotary Mechanical Smartphone by Richard Clarkson
'New Zealand-based designer/photographer Richard Clarkson has developed a prototype of “Rotary Mechanical,” a hypothetical smartphone design that is as much an art object as an exercise in form’:
"The rotary mechanical smartphone is based on the idea of incorporating more feeling and life into our everyday digital objects. In modern times these objects have come to define us, but who and what defines these objects? Are we happy with generic rectangles of a touchscreen or do we want something with more tangibility, something with more life, something with more aura?"
