Joao Mendes' 'Net Point' Connectivity Concept Doesn't Include the Phone

 - Oct 31, 2009
Phone booths (you remember those, right?) are getting harder and harder to find, but the Joao Mendes Net Point concept may bring back the public booth (hooked up to the web, of course). The pod provides a comfortable seat, just enough privacy, and a fast Internet connection.

Mendes, a Portuguese designer, is hot on the pod concept, as can also be seen in his publicly shared vehicle designs in the gallery. But what do you think of the Joao Mendes Net Point? Will public booths ever find a market, or is communication destined for handheld super devices?
