Heartbeat Mobile Phone Concept Is Mostly Heart, Still Needs More Brains

It’s more of a fact that everyday people are becoming increasingly attached to their mobile phones. For one, it’s what gives most people a “lifeline” to the outside world; it’s what they use to communicate with their friends and family.

Aside from that, it’s also the device they commonly turn to when they’re bored (to play games and stream media) or when they’re lonely (to chat and connect on social networks.)

And the humanized devices are coming, one after the other. First it was the Modai concept phone, and now it’s Sang Hoon Lee’s Heartbeat mobile phone concept. The former is more completely thought-out when it comes to features and how it would work. On the other hand, the Heartbeat phone is basically a phone with a heartbeat.

Thankfully, its heart doesn’t beat to signal that it’s alive, because that would just make the concept creepier than it already is. Rather, the device alerts you to incoming calls, new messages, and other notifications by beating. And not just with the sound of a heart beat, but with actual inflating and deflating action on the surface of the phone.

The heartbeat can also indicate the emotional state of the person on the other end of the line. I’d prefer to have my own actual heart do the beating. No thank you very much to the Heartbeat mobile phone concept.
