Monohm's Runcible is the world's first anti-smartphone

San Francisco-based firm Monohm unveiled a smartphone that looks like a pocket watch at MWC 2015. Called Runcible, it is designed to look like an old-fashioned pocket watch and features a high resolution fully round screen. 

It has a simple interface which focus on clean summaries of our digital lives which means you cannot play games, use social networking apps like snapchat, facebook, twitter to name a few and many more. The device's official description states that its a "post-smartphone era" in which people will focus more on the real world rather than their handset.                  

The front side of the phone features a round touchscreen display that enables voice calls, web browsing, photo taking and many more. On the rear side the device has a circular piece of wood with a hole for a camera. It does not run app or have a home screen and will never beep, alert or interrupt users. 

The Runcible runs Mozilla's open source Firefox OS.  The OS is based on Open Web standards so it can connect to the growing array of IOT (Internet of things) connected devices.

Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and LTE support. It also has a mapping tool that works as a compass and will give directions to the most interesting path to a destination rather than the speediest.

Runcible parts can be removed, repaired and upgrade, enabling the device to be kept for decades without it becoming obselete.

Monohm will be offering Runcible later this year via Japanese carrier KDDI.
