Buddy the Mobile Phone

2011

Mobile Phone Concept

 

Final Year Project themed Personable Objects with Singapore Polytechnic

A mobile phone that lasts.

In a commentary of the prevalent rise of mobile phones in today’s society, permutations of newer models are actively added into the market; readily replacing older models in timespan as short as 3 months, condemning them into being obsolete.

 

This gives rise to a noble question: Is there really such a pressing need for an epidermic of mobile phones?

 

Buddy explores the notion of a mobile phone that grows with you. As such, Buddy challenges the idea of owning a single phone for a lifetime.

 

The true question asks, “ Is it really unfathomable?”
