This device, by Nicola Reed, is a third-generation phone with the dimensions of a credit card and is intended to be worn around the neck. It's green-themed and environmentally friendly--after analyzing its user's day-to-day impact on the planet, the climate conscious are rewarded with free calls and texts.
With its origami-like folding mechanism, the phone can take the form of an envelope or a traditional thin candy bar phone.
Old school phones can be placed into the cradle, which acts as an extension of the device. The setup could, for instance, give users access to new services including home security applications, where pictures taken by a camera phone are broadcast to the Hello's owner via the Web.
Based on the concept of travelers who would keep a locket holding a family picture on their bedside, this device swivels to become a picture frame when it's not being used. Its swiveling shape also means it can be placed on a table during video calls to simulate normal eye contact.
All of the devices and designs are now on show at the Air Gallery in London.
