Me-Mo Modular Cellphone Design

Illustration for article titled Me-Mo Modular Cellphone Design

Designer Peter Norberg has found the happy medium between cellphones that just makes calls and do little else, and smartphones that have so many features that nobody can possibly use all of them. His Me-mo design takes a large cellphone and breaks it into multiple modular parts—meaning the keyboard, screen, phone, MP3 player, GPS, and camera can be taken off if a user doesn't have use for it.

The parts can be easily reattached with "jacket buttons" (yeah, we're not sure about that one), and the cellphone should be able to detect which pieces are there and adjust accordingly. Pretty sweet concept, but very hard to execute correctly. Much like an hourly drama about the inner-workings of a comedy sketch show.

jason chen loves his Heroes, but apparently sticks around only out of "rubbernecking at a horrific car crash" esque curioisity for the aaron sorkin debacle that it proceeds each monday night
