Concept handset hides next-gen phone inside an origami puzzle

As China continues its rise to tech prominence, its geeks slowly begin to emerge with their own brand of DIY innovation, as in the case of amazing concept phone called the Origami Handset.

Designed by Zhejiang University alum Chengyuan Wei, the phone is the result of the creator's efforts to dismantle a traditional handset and repurpose the parts into a lighter, more efficient form factor. It uses a diaphragm microphone, and just like a real origami work, the phone folds up into a flat rectangle when you're finished using it.
