The Feltphone is Held Together by Velcro

The Feltphone concept design by Matthias Pugin is made from fabric to reduce the use of joints and hardware that take away from the aesthetic of a phone.

This mobile phone uses felt and leather with only two main electronic parts - the display and the main phone console - and is held together with Velcro.

Implications - As phone technology continues its inexorable march, the useful gadgets are getting smaller and more diverse in their shape and materials. Phones like this offer users a more flexible and less bulky alternative to traditional metal devices, and that is definitely something that businesses looking to entice an on-the-go consumer should take heed of.
