UK Students Create 'Sensual Phones'

UK Students Create 'Sensual Phones'

While Canadian and European cell phone designers are creating conventional cell phones like the BlackBerry Curve and Nokia N76, students from a product design course at the University of Dundee have created six phones to support "intimacy and sensuality." One of the phones, which is called "Aware," sends a tingle down your back if a friend is nearby. The "Boom Tube," model allows people to make music together (a la the Pacemaker). According to the BBC, Sarah McMichael, who is one of the students who designed the Aware, said:

"This exhibition has a phone for everyone. Our aim was to get away from the unsocial mobile phones that today's world is being taken over by, to learn to communicate and interact with each other on a new level."

I get that interactive technologies are an ever-increasing phenomenon, and plenty of people are in search of innovative ways to make gadgets seamlessly intertwine into our daily lives, but I'm not sure what I think of any cell phone sending tingles down my back.

Am I reading this right or are people not joking anymore about letting the phone keep ringing for the vibrations?
