Electricpig: Two designs from Nokia’s future phone labs have surfaced. One’s an eight megapixel flat phone designed for treehuggers, the other’s a touchscreen phone with a tactile difference.
The Nokia Liquid phone uses, according to designer Rune Larsen, a liquid layer between the touchscreen and your fingers. The liquid is channelled into areas to give actual squishy buttons you can press down on, on the phone’s surface.
Meanwhile, Nokia’s eco-team have apparently decided the future is in a whittle-your-own-phone – a sustainable timber-bodied eight megapixel camphone with a speaker.
