Sorry to disappoint you folks but this is not the next Research In Motion development. This innovation is the result of a RIM-sponsored design competition at the art Centre College of Design. With the goal of designing a concept device which integrates human emotions with social networking, designers Kiki Tang and Daniel Yoong created the Blackberry Empathy.
The Empathy is an angular phone that looks absolutely stunning! The phone is used in conjunction with a biometrics ring that is worn by the user to collect “emotional data”. According to cnet, this device just a tad bonkers, as “its front is home to an OLED touch screen that’s transparent when not in use, and opaque at other times. It wouldn’t be a proper BlackBerry without a physical keyboard, but the Empathy’s is located on its back.”
Nevertheless, the Blackberry Empathy serves as reminder of the ever-present power of creativity. Too often our minds are constrained by fear of getting it wrong or making a mistake thus discouraging innovation and creativity. Don’t be afraid to dare to dream…
