Think touch-screen phones are cool? A designer at Hong-ik University in South Korea has designed a cell phone concept that turns your grimy hand into a mobile. The idea is pretty simple. Put a special strap around your hand and a beam from the strap projects a virtual keypad onto your fingers, so your hand becomes the keypad. Each joint makes up a different button and the strap itself would have a circular LCD to show you who's calling. Sure, you'd look retarded texting from your hand, but if it worked for Inspector Gadget and won an iF Concept Product Award, who am I to judge.
