Pilotfish conceptualizes the Ondo phone just for music lovers
If folks at Pilotfish, the Munich based industrial design firm, could have it their way, you could soon be holding a mobile phone that can be twisted, bent and roughed up - all for the noble cause to create more music for the world via your mobile phone.
Seriously, the Ondo "music phone" concept is one that totally shakes up each one of the traditional ways in which we have always used a mobile phone. It is shaped like a candy bar and has a touch sensitive surface, the upper portion of which is divided into three segmented OLED panels. Each segment has its own memory and can be detached from the phone and clipped on to another person or instrument as a standalone microphone, or even exchanged among different Ondo owners for music sharing. The center of the phone itself is bendable for the purposes of editing the recorded music and creates a tangible sound editing experience as you tweak the recordings. Call it one terrific sound mixer, or the most unique mobile phone concept ever, the Ondo takes first place in either category.
I am just reminded of a recent statement made by a legendary sportsman when he was asked "What is your biggest dream?". He replied, "Dreams are only for people who are sleeping". And we hope that this awesome concept will not end up being just somebody's enchanting dream.
