The ONE

Mobile technologies have changed drastically in recent years. We have graduated from the colorless flip phone to “smart” devices that are the epitome of present times. Designer Yejin Jeon took the mobile concept and flipped it on its head. What was the end result? The ONE.

ONE is a unique mobile design; a pen shaped device holds a six-inch flexible screen. The flexible touch screen enables the phone to have the same features as the average smartphone.  The pen is designed to be the primary component, holding the microphone, camera and six-inch screen.

Want to keep things simple? Use ONE’s touch screen on the pen to check messages and even make phone calls. Because the speaker, camera and lock feature are on the pen portion, you have a fully functioning phone without the retractable six-inch screen.

This design is truly remarkable – but is this feat possible? It is true that this design could be the solution to many of our mobile woes, due mainly in part to the device’s compact design.  What do you think about this design blueprint? Is the ONE for you?
