Nokia Kinetic – Concept Phone

Nokia Kinetic - Concept Phone

The phone it's self is unique in that it has a rounded base that houses an electromagnet that can make the phone stand up when an alarm goes off or a call is received. To cancel the alarm you can just tap it back down.

When the phone is automatically standing up, it can also be used to make hands free video calls if needed.

The base also doubles up as a more comfortable camera grip when holding the phone in landscape mode to capture video or images.

Most concepts never reach production stage for whatever reasons. However, Nokia was involved in the college course and even had someone who previously worked at Nokia help with the course indicating that Nokia could be asking for these designs to use in phones in the future. Of course there is still no guarantee that we will ever see this phone go on sale. Either way, it's actually quite a nice looking phone.

Creative designer Jeremy Innes-Hopkins has an interesting concept phone called the Nokia Kinetic. The phone responds to notifications through movement. An electromagnet in the base of the phone allows weight to be shifted which causes the phone to stand up when receiving a call, for example.

To dismiss a call, the user can simply give the phone a gentle tap, causing it to fall back down again and return to standby mode. There’s no word on whether this design will make it to real life, but it’s an interesting concept that could be very useful. Standing up on its own is a much cooler notification than vibrate. We also won’t need to buy an additional phone stand accessory if it can do it by itself.
