Created by Takumi Yoshida, who also designed the Bluetooth headset that arrives with the mobile phone, the Sens Inclusive features a unique keypad which incorporates an unusual shape for each and every button making them distinguishable by touch. The handset also includes real-time audio feedback. The mobile will also be able to display a variety of colours for different functions - for those users whose vision can still dissern colour recognition.
Of course, this is just a concept, so the design is not about to be distributed in the UK. However, often, this sort of ‘in the flesh' design can be the impetus for a mass produced model. It is hoped, therefore, that a major manufacturer might take note of the Sens Inclusive and develop it further.
