Nokia Kinetic phone (Amazing feature)

The Nokia Kinetic isn’t just a sleek concept phone. It’s a sleek concept phone that raises itself up into a standing position when a call comes in. Huh?  Inside the Kinetic is an electromagnet that can shift weights in the curved base, causing the phone to tilt upright on cue, that cue being an incoming call. Telemarketer again?
Tap the phone to decline the call and it’ll fall back down. It’s intended to be a playful feature, though I can see it being useful in a quiet office where even vibrating phones are sometimes an irritant to others.

The Kinetic’s pretty clever, though designer Jeremy Innes-Hopkins will have to do some serious convincing if anyone’s going to go for the bulbous form factor of this thing.

Thanks.
