The device looks quite prosaically and visually even mimics the standard form of the smartphone. The only difference is that it consists entirely of plastic, in which there is a niche with balls of stone.

According to the designer, the stones allow to simulate the majority of gestures with which we manage our smartphone. Part of the users has grown so much with their devices, which can automatically, without any need, unlock the screens and chaotically open and collapse applications.
