We just came back from GSMA mobile world congress
in Barcelona.We were kindly invited there by the lovely people at modu
, with whom we were lucky enough to work on corporate identity and creative concepts for this exciting event .
Together with more than 90 employees and partners, we took a day trip from Tel Aviv to Barcelona to witness the buzz, excitement and curiosity around modu.Visitors were literally flocking around the tiny booth, potential partners and members of the press were crowded in the hospitality suit, wanting to know and see for themselves what this fuss is all about and who or what the hell is this modu
Well, modu is the new clever invention coming straight from the people who brought the memory stick to this world, led by the visionary Dov Moran.
The modu concept is unique in the mobile world, which like all fantastic inventions is quite simple really.
modu concept is all about transformations, morphing, flexibility and boundless possibilities.
modu takes the regular mobile handset concept and breaks it to two pieces, then you are left with:
1. modu – a sleek & tiny fully functional phone, which carries your data, memory and contacts all around.
2. jacket – the cover, in charge of looks and enhanced functionality.
now, imagine you could take this little modu, slip it into a variety of stylishly designed modu jackets and turn it into a multitude of different phones or devices in a matter of seconds, without needing to pay as much for those devices as you would if they were standalone products — sounds interesting, right?
But the dream does not stop here. modu has lots of friends, called modu mates. these guys are modu-enabled consumer electronic devices such as Personal Music Players, Digital Cameras or DECT Phones. By slipping modu into modu mates you can infuse wireless capabilities to these mates.
Add to all of the above the affordable pricing, and you have, most likely, a winner.
The modu phone will be available from the 1 October in Israel, Italy and Russia to start with.
