Ply Phone Stacks a Whole World of Gadgets Into One Device

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  August 21, 2008


The Ply concept phone has so many features stacked into its wooden shell that I had to read about it twice to fully grasp its awesomeness. Each layer holds a gadget with a distinct function, including a phone, game controller, photo printer, and projector (among other things). Zowie!

It’s designed by Hideo Kanbara. If I met him right now I would probably ask him one question: will you marry me? And then hearts and flowers would fly out of his butt, I’m guessing, because anyone who designs this is brilliant and fabulous and genius and all of that.

Of course, like so many fabulous things, this is still a concept. And of course, the Ply site, which has loads of pretty pictures is all in Japanese. (That is so my bete noire.)

They actually made one of these and it’s on display at the KDDI Studio in Harajuku, so if you happen to be in Tokyo right now then feel free to go and check it out.

In closing: this is one concept I would love to see become a reality and I will so go on record as promising to pay thousands of dollars for this if and when it becomes a reality.
