When you commission students from a school whose home page features a bunch of folks jumping with buckets on their heads to help design the cellphone of the future, you should expect to get some curious results. That's exactly what Nokia did, asking students at London's Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design to submit concepts for 4G and 5G (5G? sign us up!) devices. Pictured is the "Scentsory," a foldable, uh -- what would you call this form factor? -- triangle phone with the added bonus of scent reception from the caller. The keypad doesn't seem particularly usable, and frankly the giant logo is a little self-indulgent, but those are the least of your problems when your buddy who works down at the rendering plant decides to catch up with you.
