Jeong-Kyun Nam's T-Phone – picture phone for the elderly

Mobile phones

It’s probably unfair to call the T-Phone a handset for the elderly, but it certainly makes the technology easier to access.

Because let’s be honest, pensioners on mobile phones still aren’t the most common of sites. Maybe they will be more widely seen when handsets like the T-Phone are available with photo buttons, each with RFID tag information on them. To call your chosen person, just place the badge on the call button and press it. The phone reads the RFID information in the badge and dials the number.

Simple stuff (in terms of use anyway), but not yet commonly available. This is a concept phone from Jeong-Kyun Nam, which may or may not see the light if day.
