    wow that a cool concept. Flip phones haven't died they just aren't a fad anymore.

    i think it would drive me crazy that 2 screens are convex and one is concave.

    One screen has a touchpad kb when in a tesxting or typing program...all three are touch screens....the design would beg for battery power though...using that conductive rubber versus mesh would help....would still take a good battery or 3 to keep it going....motion sensor would have to be on queue....good design....

    Missed that.....didn't watch the video :D

    Yeah will be a battery hog for sure, and the design doesn't look like it allows for a large battery. Oh well its still pretty awesome.

    I could absolutely see owning this thing! The concave/ convex thing wouldn't bother me, it looks like the concave goes w/ the keyboard and the convex two go together. So they would never be used in conjunction w/ each other.

    My god spaz, you must hate it when someone gives you a spoon concave side down!

    Well as a design i think this is amazing. In practicality i wouldn't expect to see technology like this for another 7 to 10 years, unless some major breakthroughs in battery tech and hardware fabrication happen.
