I will give you a prediction here and now. The upswing in high-tech technology integrated into every facet of our lives will soon (say 5+ years from now) experience a backlash started by none other than us; designers. The Circle Phone is an example of such a backlash.
Designer Jin Le believes there will be a yearning for simplicity. His circle phone eschews almost everything current electronic design goes for. You won’t find a touchscreen here. There’s only 3 buttons and a rotary style dial pad set in a very modern looking ring.
