Packet - really radical 5-touch-screen phone concept

Emir Rafat designed something technologically surreal... Screens are folding out; the phone makes an extensive use of electronic "paper":

This mobile phone concept was awarded the first place at the Istanbul Design Week 2007.

Also worthy of mention is Nokia's "Morph" concept (see video) - exploring the possibilities of nano-technology application in mobile phones.

A new height for tacky style?

Get yourself (and everybody around you) slightly creepy EYE-glasses:

UPDATE: These glasses have a story:

In Rotterdam, Holland, a vicious gorilla named Bokito escaped and attacked a woman just a year ago. Apparently she was staring at him all the time, making him very aggressive. Hence the "Bokito"-glasses that seem to be looking elsewhere, so you can safely watch the gorilla. (info)

And while you're at it, get yourself a "Smile on a Stick" - more info:

or a really, really weird "Hair / Animal / Hat" style -
