Change is the law of nature. This aptly applies to almost every field of work or innovation coming to existence. Sometime in the past, portable gadgets were objects that inspired wonder. Communication is one of the most affected field, which started gaining pace with the advent of cellphones. Today mobile phones, both high-end and cheap, are available for every sect of society. Still, technology is not letting innovators satisfy themselves with what they have. High-end technology and unusual designs are flooding the market. Now, we have cellphones that can be wrapped around the wrist, can be folded and much more. Innovators are striving to get more out of every new advancement in technology. Here is a collection of some of the best concept phones, which are the future of portable communication devices.

I wonder if they'll make an Iphone Shuffle; you just press a button and it rings a random person

A false tooth that picks up digital signals and beams messages straight to the ear is going on show at the Science Museum this week.

The tooth implant contains a chip that picks up a signal from a mobile phone or similar device within a one metre range and uses bone resonance to send the message to the wearer's ear.

James Auger created the tooth along with Jimmy Loizeau as part of a future product competition run by the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts while at the Royal College of Art.

Auger, now a research associate at Media Lab Europe in Dublin, said: "This is almost a first step to telepathy. We're very interested in the bionic development of our species.

"This device means the wearer can receive information at any place, at any time as it is completely discreet."

When programmed with a PC, a dedicated receiver device can send anything to the tooth from MP3 tunes to covert instructions from M15.

The tooth only has a range of one metre because the signal has to be transmitted through the moisture inside the wearer's cheek, Auger said.

Although the tooth was created purely for experimental purposes, Auger said the tooth could be put into production now.

Neither of the inventors have a patents out on the digital denture.

Does that mean that I can steal their teeth and patent it? ;D

I think you may find 'stealing teeth' hard to patent!!!
