Skinny handsets have been around for ages. However, a phone that resembles the feel of human skin is something else altogether. LG_skinphone_1 LG's SH240: its silicone keypad 'feels like real skin' The SH240 is LG’s latest slider handset. The phone's party trick is that the keypad is crafted from silicone to make it feel as …
Feeling like cold, dead skin can't be a selling point, surely? Ick
Anybody remember the ZX81?...
It's Lampshade time for you......
I'm not sure why but the thought of that gives me the willies.
CYON, CYLON, coincidence? I think not.
Is it just me or is cyon just a little to close to cylon? An interesting choice of name for a phone that can repliacte human skin.
Aren't they missing an L in there?
Texture of skin!?
Thats just downright creepy!
Regardless, a pretty mediocre handset.
Most will likely give it a wide berth.
I'd rather touch the skin of those hot ladies!
like huiman skin to the touch
You know, that's actually - well, pretty horrible to be honest. A bit Silence-Of-The-Lambs and all that, like. :/
Feels like silicon and vibrates eh?
What's the bet this sells well to a select clientele that make good use of chrome and silicon things that vibrate... ;->
Hopefully the outer skin of this silicone phone* will be more durable than the skin of the Nokia N95 which has a propensity to fall off when the phone comes in contact with any Sunscreen or DEET based insect repellent.

"Anybody remember the ZX81?..."
I think you mean the ZX Spectrum (original model), with the 'dead-flesh' rubber keyboard.
The ZX81 had a membrane keyboard.
How do you clean it?

I know my wife's dildo is hard to clean.
There was a rubber keyboard accessory for the ZX81 which made it feel close to that of the first gen ZX Spectrum, it was glued on top of the flat keyboard but you still had to press hard to make the buttons work.
My phone's keypad ...
... is actually made of human skin. I do have to replace it every now and then but it's a cheap, readily available material so it's no problem.
Feels a bit like silicon.
Is that a phone in your pocket?
Or are you just happy to see me?
Wrong set of hands?
It looks like one of the girls has 2 left hands.
