The Intruder: Cellphone That Thinks it's a Powder Compact

This cellphone concept, designed by Dennis Hopkins, has been given the most awful name—considering its femme-friendly design. It's called The Intruder—probably something to do with UFOs which, judging by Dennis' website, seem to have influenced his idea.

Just 2.5 inches in diameter, the Intruder is just one-third of an inch thick when closed. Open it up and a 220 x 176 pixel display swivels out from the center section, giving you a 5-inch-long handset. A rather fabulous circular ray of light emanates from the phone when it rings.

The rather mysterious website isn't giving away any clues as to the technology, but who cares? It's quite cute, but it reminds me more of a powder compact, that rather outmoded cosmetic that only grannies seem to possess, than a UFO. Of course, we women always have seen the world differently than men.
