Maple Phone Developed By Yoon And Lee

Maple Phone Developed By Yoon And Lee

Transforming a popular product into a wooden version is a bizarre development, but the cell phone has just undergone such treatment. The Maple Phone has been developed by two Koreans, Hyun Jin Yoon and Eun Hak Lee as they prove that phones do not need to follow the same trend of plastic products. The wooden phone exhibits a touch sensitive keypad and also a camera. For the touchpad to work correctly, we believe that some different materials are used, as this would be impossible based on wood alone. The phone is great from an environmental perspective, since wood is a natural source and completely renewable. Perhaps this will pave the way for future wooden products, for example wooden MP3 players, wooden laptops, wooden televisions etc.

The wooden phone does not look particularly appealing, and will no doubt be heavier than the traditional plastic. At the moment, it looks like a block of wood with some numbers and stickers placed on the front. Nevertheless it would be great to get our hands on one and compare it with a more conventional plastic cell phone.

Woah! Great idea but, the way technology is changing now, it might not become the most popular thing. But it's awesome!

I think it'svery good idea.
but we already use smart phone.
so in contemporary society, it's not useful.

An interesting invention, something rare would have thought about and only you who pursued the thought. However, how many would actually want to try a less convenient phone when they alrd have very light high tech plastic phones.
nevertheless, very impressive, very minblowing, very unexpected. If I have the money, id try this phone. (y) :d
