Richard Clarkson: Rotary Mechanical SmartphonePosted: June 17, 2011
From Clarkson: Digital vs. Mechanical – Rotary Mechanical Smartphone is a concept … that combines and synthesizes digital technologies and physical mechanical systems [&] is based on the idea of incorporating more feeling and life into our everyday digital objects. Rotary mechanical is a question not only about the ever increasing ‘digital take-over’ of everything in our lives but also what is lost when this happens. There are two interchangeable brass dials, a true rotary dial and a button dial, the act of changing these is inspired from changing the lenses on a camera.
