Butterfly Cell Phone

Clack click clack - hello?

Some may be familiar with butterfly knives (linked). With practice one can clack and click these in an ominous, ninja-like kungfu way, producing then concealing the blade in seconds. although on looking them up I see that they are really a Filipino invention.

The average Westerner has little cause to produce a three inch blade within seconds. But cell phones are a different matter. I propose that the butterfly method of housing a knife be adapted to the cell phone. Whip in out, click and clack, and talk away. How cool is that? Do I need to tell you. OK: very very cool.

This would have added benefit of concealing the input keys within the housing, and if done correctly could even impart a degree of impact resistance and waterproofing to the phone.
