When designer Mac Funamizu tired of his cellphone being just another lump on his desk, he didn't get mad. He got concepty.

Mobile Phone Concepts "Floater" from Mac Funamizu on Vimeo.

Floater B is a sleek handset that has a supporter built into the back, letting it stand at attention on any flat surface. The supporter also conceals a physical keyboard that can be accessed when it's slid in the other direction. Floater B's companion, Floater A, puts a new spin on the vibrate function by nodding or rotating when there's an incoming call.

They're both just concepts for now, but it's not so crazy an idea that we couldn't see them soon as a practical application. At least, I hope it's not. [Yanko Design]
