Tarati Touchless Phone Concept


A play on the "reach out and touch someone jingle," Tarati is Branko Lukic's new idea for a mobile that dials by passing fingers through keyholes creating a touchless experience. Nevermind multi-touch user interfaces, the former IDEO designer's concept makes dialing "a more magical experience and, hence, more indicative of what's really happening beyond the visible realm." Borrowing a name from the Sanskrit word for "he passed through," Tarati is the fourth in Lukic's Design Fictions, all previews from his forthcoming book nonobject due out later this year.
