LG Electronics MobileComm U.S.A. announced the winners of its third annual Design the Future Competition, which challenged participants to create a concept for the mobile phone of the future.

More than 400 designs were submitted during the six-week competition with more than $80,000 in awards at stake. For the contest, LG Electronics co-partnered with crowdSPRING, an online marketplace for creative services ranging from graphic, web and industrial design to copy writing services.

First place went to a team of four second-year industrial design students at Virginia Tech. They created a smartphone that showcased detailed interface scenarios that they gathered from their own research. These four students will share in $20,000 and also received Autodesk Alias Sketch software.

The second-place entry was a mobile phone with 3D interface that connects the user's phone and the car to adjust in-car climate, control the infotainment system, check tire pressure and gauge the fuel amount, among other tasks. The creator is a professional car designer.

This year's competition also featured the presentation of the first Prop Mater's Choice Award which was given to Dua Xiong for his design titled the Flutter - a smartphone that fans open to reveal a LED touch screen that scrolls radially. The Flutter won the opportunity to be featured in upcoming film. LG also presented 37 honorable mentions with $1,000 each.
