British designer Jeremy Hopkins decided to create an unique phone concept, Nokia Kinetic, that turns digital information into kinetic energy. What does this mean? Well, basically, the phone will stand up on its own, once you get a notification, thanks to a kinetic energy-based system.

This is a 2009 design, with the Nokia phone using a classic mini USB port, a camera, speaker and a bulky lower side. The front side looks like a hybrid between the N81 and iPhone 4 and if you’re wondering about the whole “standing up” thing, know that the device relies on an electromagnet. This mechanism is placed at its based and shifts the phone’s weight, to keep it upright.
