If in 80 years you addicted to computer technology, you could only dream of a home computer such as the Commodore 64 and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Later they began to be produced numerous clones, and then IBM AT / XT. But every true fan will remain forever in the memory of the same Commodore 64 with 64 KB of RAM, which opened a new era, and still holds the world record for the number of years during which one model is sold as is.
21 years after the closure of the company, designer and owner Massimo Battaglia Givingshape blog decided to rebuild the Commodore 64 and adapt it to the 21 century.The design of this concept does not involve only the addition of the logo on a smartphone, but the idea is to convey the shape and contours of your old PC to your mobile device.
This smartphone runs Android and it was envisioned by the folks of Giving Shape. 8 bit music and graphics, plus the good old days of gaming inspired the creation of this phone. The phone has lines that become fading dots, hidden capacitive buttons and a mouse shaped back. I guess the top part may as well be a huge speaker, the one at the front. The handset looks very hip and posh, with a rounded lower area and straight edges. There are even more dots at the bottom, which is another good location to place a speaker or two.
Unfortunately, this is just a concept,but the idea of the Italian designer is a genius.
