Just about everybody in the developed world has a cellphone (as do a surprising number of people in the developing world!), so how do you deal with those occasions when you must separate yourself from your electronic prosthesis? The Public Mobile Phone System was dreamed up by Liu Yi as a way to rent a local handset quickly and easily by anyone.

If you're traveling with a locked smartphone or your device has broken, this concept gadget kiosk would be so helpful. Approach it, use the touchscreen interface to choose the type of gizmo you'd like to hire, pay for it and then obtain it from the retractable platform. The Public Mobile Phone System would be linked to calculate borrow length and usage, charging your credit card appropriately upon the handset's return.
