Everyone knows mobile phones can be irritating as hell to others, especially in public places. But as soon as we ourselves are calling, we don’t care so much any longer about others near us, do we…?
SoMo is a cool & funny design project that questions our behaviour in public spaces, and gives us some sanctions to ‘enlighten’ others. 5 Different mobile phones have been designed:
– SoMo1 is the electric shock mobile.
– SoMo2 is the speaking mobile.
– SoMo3 is the musical mobile.
– SoMo4 is the knocking mobile.
– SoMo5 is the catapult mobile.
