Get your Da Vinci on with the Cryptex phone concept

Want to try out a phone that takes its design cues from an idea by Leonardo Da Vinci? Check out this nameless cryptex mobile phone concept. It takes the shape of, well, a cryptex, and sure enough the numbers, as well as a few keys come as part of the rotating dials.

You simply have to turn the dials towards certain directions to initiate phone calls, answer incoming ones or hang up on the other party. It’s got it’s own dock, where you’ll be able to find the “phonebook” and will also most probably be used for charging it.


The designer of this mobile phone concept had this to say about it:

You turn the dial of every element to the desired cipher. If you entered the number you turn the first segment “to phone” (green LED). If you want to hang up the call you turn the first segment to “hang up” (red LED). The phone works without buttons and without a display and based on the old dial phones.

It surely is an interesting phone concept, and when you add the fact that it also has a nice vibrating feature, it will surely be a hit with users, especially the ladies.
