LG's Design the Future competition guarantees deluge of fanciful phone concepts

If you don't like the way phones look these days, why don't you get off your lazy behind and do something about it? LG's inviting you to do exactly that -- and what's more, there are 43 awards of various levels of awesomeness just waiting to be given away ranging from $1,000 (plus an LG phone, presumably not of your own design) all the way up to 20 grand. The Autodesk-sponsored competition claims that it'll be totally agnostic to the kinds of entries submitted -- whether they be sketches, renders, or computer-aided drafts -- instead concentrating on factors like market potential, creativity, polish and appeal, and our favorite, feasibility. Get those creative juices flowing, though, because the contest wraps up on June 8th.
