Grand Touch Aston Martin Phone is the second phone released by Mobiado as part of their Aston Martin collection. Last year we featured their cool concept phone Aston Martin CPT002, unfortunately this transparent phone is still not commercially available. The great news is, Grand Touch Aston Martin Phone won’t disappoint you, it’s the combination of stylish form and beauty with the state of the art mobile functionality. This mobile phone features timeless design, sophisticated and distinctive.
The body of this mobile phone is constructed from solid aircraft aluminum meticulously CNC machined and anodized to create smooth and elegant hard surface for the exterior body. The gold version is CNC machined from solid brass and plated with yellow or rose gold to add luxurious touch of its appearance. The surfaces of the bodies are created with curves to straight line edges, a process that can only be executed with the precision of CNC machining.
Depending on the model, mother of pearl (MOP) or ebony wood is inset below the surface creating details of depth. A new design language of accuracy and exactness is born. The battery cover is made from a single piece of sapphire crystal with a unique hidden sliding mechanism. The screws are gun metal black stainless steel and the buttons are black painted sapphire crystal. The Grand Touch Aston Martin is available in five engineering styles: Black with Black MOP, Black with Gold MOP, Silver with White MOP, Yellow Gold with Ebony Wood, and Rose Gold with Ebony Wood.

EKON lights up to welcome you, literally! This interactive city coupe 2+2 is designed with electro chromatic glass that changes its opacity from tinted to clear by pressing a remote control or fingerprint reader behind the glazing above the doors. Thomas Pinel, the designer of this car was inspired by organic forms when he designed the interior, you can tell from leaves shaped OLED screens on the instrument panel. He also says that the seat covers are made of green fabric, aluminum for switches and steering wheel. This futuristic car is capable to send messages to other drivers or pedestrians by displaying graphical messages on its body, hopefully it will improve the traffic to prevent accident instead of distracting other drivers, or starting a road rage by mocking others through its display.
“The EKON is an interactive city coupe 2+2, powered by an electric engine in each wheels. This result for the Ekon by a unique package and proportions (H. 1300 W.1770 L.3940).
The Ekon turn on like a notebook. It lights up, the main screen of electro chromatic glass changes opacity from tinted to clear and the interior appears, welcoming the driver and passengers – Only by pressing a remote control or by touching the fingerprint reader behind the glazing above the doors. In the mean while, the top and doors move up and backseats can flip ahead to ease the access to rears seats.”
“The interior theme is inspired by the idea of efficiency of nature and organic forms. The OLED screens shaped as leaves come out from the instrument panel. Materials chosen remind home interiors with warm wood planks on the dashboard, Aluminum for switches and steering wheel, Green fabric for seats covers and black and white Glossy surfaces for back seat, door panels and boxes.”
“The Ekon enhances interactivity with other drivers or pedestrians by exchanging graphical messages, visible on its body (Tinted OLED screen on front and rear).
These messages relate to 3 fields of communication: Information, Personalization and Emotion.
The information consists by a quick message to improve the traffic and interactions with other cars and pedestrians. So the messages can prevent accident, misunderstanding or simply give the priority.
The personalization is the playground for creative people who have the envy to mark them out with an avatar, special look for the car. It can refer also to long term information like advertising.
The emotion is the user feeling and the need to express it. How many times a driver hit the steering wheel and speaks to himself? This is the possibility to be thankful, happy about the weather or hate someone.
The language chosen, by visibility and readability concerns, is an automotive interpretation of virtual chat icons (Emoticons). One tactile pad on the steering wheel allows sending theses icons by very simple and intuitive movements like you would use your IPhone.”
