Developed for a competition organized by LG Electronics in collaboration with Autodesk, the “Loop” by designer Andres Parada is a mobile phone for the visually impaired that gives the glimpse, of course seems brighter, of the future of personal mobile communication. Designed to create person’s tactile senses instead of the visual, the futuristic cellphone removes the screen or the button pad and keeps the hands of the users free.
Featuring a compact size than a regular cellphone available in market, the Loop is designed to clip onto the clothing of the user, if he/she doesn’t wanna worn it around the neck by attaching it to a strap. The cellphone concept makes use of scroll dialing, which is much more intuitive for the blind than regular buttons. The earpiece of this cellphone can be attached to the phone either when it’s not in use or to terminate an ongoing call.
