Your Favorite Concept Phone of 2007 Is...

It was a tight race, but the phone that received the most votes in the favorite concept phone of 2007 poll was Tarati's touchless cell phone. Industrial Designer Branko Lukic has created the Tarati to enable the user to connect with others by passing fingers, in order, through key holes. "This action of dialing alone is a more magical experience and, hence, more indicative of what's really happening beyond the visible realm," says Yanko Design. "Tarati beckons the user to “touch” someone without physically touching a single key. Its design reflects human connectivity in a less material/mechanical, more sensual, way. Tarati is a subtle device, but ever-so-powerful in its fearlessness." I'm curious to know what intrigued people most about this device. . .Its design philosophy or its aesthetic appeal?

It's so different, but I won't be trading my iPhone in for it anytime soon.

i really don't like it. it seems like it is going back in time to me. with the mp3/camera/super phones of today, who would want something so simple. it also seems like in a purse ir would get caught on things. it's just not my style.

sigh...I'm know I'm hopeless old fashioned about these things, but the feature I really want with my cell phone is for it to connect when I make phone calls, stay connected the entire time I want to talk, and to let us talk and hear each other. It does not seem like so much to ask, but I haven't found it yet. Maybe in 2008!
