CES 2013: UrbanHello demo – the home phone

UrbanHello phone

At CES Unveiled, the media event leading into CES 2013, UrbanHello co-founder Hervé Artus demonstrated the prototype for what his company is calling the new home phone that works as a hand-set, and as a 360 degree hands-free speaker phone.

The elegantly designed device features a keypad on the bottom, OLED display, and it also works with standard phone lines. UrbanHello also includes standard home phone features like caller ID, call lists, and a phonebook.

Watch the demonstration video below, and you can support the UrbanHello project on Kickstarter.
