PixCell Concept is the Bubbliest Phone Ever

Japanese telco KDDI recently commissioned Kohei Nawa to create a prototype phone. The Pixcell via Prismoid is a flip phone with an asymmetrical form factor, meant to convey an image of cells growing and popping out of the casing. Personally, we think the Pixcell—when closed—looks like an angular metal block covered by oversized water droplets.

No info on whether the Pixcell will ever hit the market. It comes off more as an artistic exercise rather than a product design. One thing's clear however: with artificial droplets distributed throughout the casing, it will be hard to do a signal-killing death grip on this phone.

Are you a fan of complex or minamlistic designs? Let us know in the comments!

    doesn't look like anything revolutionary, probably could just print a bubble design on there for the same effect.

    Has this phone caught a virus?

    well.. if the bubbles are rubber it might not be a bad thing to give an extremely clumsy person ... till they drop it in a puddle
  • The bubbles will keep you from blocking the reception by holding the phone wrong....Oh wait. Steve Jobs said nothing is wrong with iPhone 4....Breaking news: News conference on Friday to talk about iPhone 4 receptions problems
