Concept phone powered by solar energy.
Industrial designer Cyrene Quiamco took inspiration from a Swiss Army knife to design a concept phone
that eases music, contact information and other data transfer that till date is mostly transferred via Bluetooth. The concept phone, known as Kard, utilizes electronic cards to exchange information between two similar devices
The cellphone packs a card reader and a touchscreen interface. Cards can be made from a wide range of materials, which can be flexible as well. Transferring data from one cellphone to another requires a swipe of the relevant card. Other cards can include a solar panel card that the user can flip to change the cellphone when it is out of juice. The device can support a maximum of 10 cards, which will each perform a unique task.
