The FiiL Cellphone is one of the first truly inspired products to address one of the key drawbacks of traditional cellphone touchscreens: the lack of tactile interaction.
On a regular touchscreen phone, every icon, button or shape feels the exact same -- something that usually forces a user to maintain eyesight, or which completely prevents those with visual impairment from using one at all. The FiiL Cellphone however, has a 'Tangible User Interface' that lets the user virtually feel every single item on your screen.
The technology is certainly still new, but is very promising. As an added bonus, the phone itself doesn't look too shabby at all and is definitely Mac-minimalism-inspired.
