The ancient art of origami meets new technology with the Chengyuan Wei origami phone. This origami phone is especially cool as it is a highpoint in simplicity in a world that is changing so rapidly. It makes modern technology strangely recognizable, yet also bewildering as it is something people would never dream of combining.

When you pick up the piece of paper to answer it and dial out, the Chengyuan Wei origami phone changes from a flat surface to a tridimensional object suited to the hand. Minimal and efficient.

It is as artful as it is useful, since it bears a much more eco-friendly element than other, regular cell phones of today. Check out the Chengyuan Wei origami phone in the gallery.
