Copylight Cellphone Leaks… Literally, When You Get a Call

Want a handset that really pulls out all possible stunts to let you know that you’re getting a call? Forget the acoustic signals, vibrations or any other tactile notification, because now Sang-Hoon Lee created a more original way of informing you about a call.

The handset below, called the Copylight concept phone is the one to sport the new technology.


This device allows a flow of light to leak out like water, either inside the pocket of the user or on surfaces, in order to let him know that he’s got an incoming call. It’ll be quite funny to see people with their clothes “leaked on”, by various colours of light, thanks to the Copylight phone.

An interesting idea, with a huge potential for pranksters and a great tool to use at parties or in night clubs.

    It is interesting how lack of understanding of physics can be called creative design. Wait, moronic, not interesting.

    Ok so it may not be possible at the moment…but if it was it would be brilliant. Maybe one day there will be a technolgy, which may not be exactly light, but some kind of substance that acts like a liquid but leaves no physical signs and deteriorates very quickly to make this effect. So *ahem* there is no reason to be so downright ‘moronic’ yourself zunguri. See it for what it is…a piece of conceptual design. It doesn’t HAVE to be real…heck…it doesn’t even HAVE to be possible, just as long as the idea is there.
