And we thought touchscreens were tough enough to handle… Seems that Marc Schomann has just designed a mobile phone that will make your head spin while trying to dial the number of your close friends. Why? It will be a rather puzzle-based experience…


The handset hasn’t got a name yet, but what we do know is that it uses haptic technology and provides physical feedback while you try to make a call. In order to use this device, you’ll have to twist its circular sections till they’re aligned and they display the number you’re searching for.

After aligning the segments you’ll have to twist the first section of the handset till its LED turns greed. And that’s how you make a “Cryptex call” ladies and gentlemen.
