The Lucent Concept Phone Takes Mobile Gaming to New Heights

Japanese designer Mac Funamizu is known for his innovative tech designs that are often a few years ahead of their time. The Lucent concept phone is another future-forward design that sees Funamizu taking the popular slider smartphone and making it transparent.

When I say transparent, I don't mean that you get to see the innards of the Lucent concept phone every time you go to send a text message. I mean that you can see through the phone as if you're looking through a piece of glass.

The unique design of the Lucent concept phone turns the ordinary into extraordinary. Funamizu has made mundane tasks like opening an email fun by adding Super Mario-inspired features. Mobile gaming as we know it could be forever changed. I don't want to get too far ahead of myself as the Lucent is still a concept. Still, if we have the technology for 3D phones, I believe it's high-time and people should start getting some see-through phones as well. Make it happen guys.
