The shape-shifting future of the mobile phone
Fabian Hemmert explains how mobile phone technology has the potential to become a bit more human:
Fabian Hemmert thinks hard about communicating information in non-visual ways — through weight, shape, touch, movement. His recent explorations into shape-shifting cell phones are part of a long career of thinking beyond the touchscreen. Along with his shape-shifting mobile phones, his newest work explores haptic feedback in pens. He’s a design researcher at Deutsche Telekom Laboratories and is working on his PhD in Berlin.
