Concept bracelet phone leaves electricity behind

For fashionable folk who enjoy the simple life but still need to be in contact with the rest of the world, comes the Leaf wearable bracelet phone concept. Great if you’ve run out of pockets or don’t want to carry a handbag, the Leaf is a wearable bracelet phone that incorporates solar cells for power on its front panel. Inspired by photosynthesis, the Leaf is pretty basic - good for making calls and texting only. However, designers Seungkyun Woo and Junyi Heo say it’s main objective is to “remind people that they can contribute to energy efficiency.”
Looking a little like the Nokia Morph of last year, the docking cradle for the Leaf also has solar cells on the back. But hey, if it’s too dark for charging – like at night – you can use electricity to recharge the Leaf.
Why not wear it on the opposite wrist to your iBangle?
