Anticipation for the iWatch might have influenced the innovative design of the Limbo Transformable Smartphone. Boasting all of the abilities of a cutting-edge mobile phone, this clever gadget can be conveniently worn on one's wrist.

Designer Jeabyun Yeon's concept is based on the use of flexible materials, enabling the device to remain flat and rectangular while it's being used on its own, but allowing it to bend easily in two places so that it can be fixed to a thick wristband.

The Limbo Transformable Smartphone was dreamed up with a generous touchscreen surface, a home button, volume buttons and a touch-sensitive menu at the bottom that can be accessed when the cellphone is mounted on its cuff. Stats for Malleable Wrist-Worn Mobiles Trending: Older & Buzzing
