on Wednesday,October 07,2009 16:10
The future of cell phone technology may have been decided, as Go Jin-gwon, a South Korean design student, has won the grand prize in the 2009 Fujitsu Mobile Phone Design Awards at the CEATEC technology trade show in Chiba city, Japan.
Jin-Gwon''s design, succinctly referred to as "the gesture," was chosen from a field of over 2,000 applicants and utilizes built-in sensors to read the users hand motions on the touch screen before matching each movement through the phones digital interface to make calls, take pictures and browse the internet.
Other standouts among the 24 finalists include the color changing "Chamelephone," the paper thin "Fold-a-phone," the linkable "Sliced-up Phones" and the "Amoeba Phone," a concave disk whose entire surface serves as a touch screen interface.
"We were able to gather designs based on viewpoints that are different from our perspective as a manufacturer," Fujitsu Corporate Senior Vice President Hideyuki Saso tells Asia Pulse.
For his victory, Jin-gwon will receive $22,000 and Fujitsu has begun production of the new handset, with a projected release date of 2011.
