NEC Develops Prototype Phone To Cater To Gumby

Remember back in the late 1980s, early 1990s when some company developed those rulers that would snap around your wrist? Well NEC apparently was a huge fan and this new concept cellphone they’ve developed is no exception. Dubbed the “tag”, these cellphones are made up of a shape-memorizing rubber that can be twisted and controlled to your liking. The picture shows three different colors that could be sold: orange, off-white, and black. Some people already coordinate their phones to their outfit, but with this the phone becomes part of your outfit. Stunning idea. Let’s hope NEC catches on and makes this a reality someday.
