revolutionary cordless phones and compete for more than $6500 in awards.

We are looking for the next generation home phone concepts. What do you think the next generation of cordless phones should work or look like for the U.S. market in the next 2 to 3 years? We're NOT looking for a long list of specs or phone ideas that already exist. We're looking for a cool new concept or "big idea" supported by usage scenario and user experience illustrations.
Key guidelines We're allowing ONE page per submission (11x 17). Each entry must include a description of the design inspiration and a usage scenario. Please use the provided template as a starting point. Please make sure that the text is visible (12 pt. font or higher) and the images are large to make it easy for the judges to review. Keep in mind, the Uniden logo must be included somewhere on the phone. Use the logo files provided (one is for light background and one is for dark).
Please look at the current products in the market (provided)
Judging criteria: Aesthetic / Creativity / Originality (40% weight): Is the idea / design unique? Does the concept convey WOW or game-changing characteristics? Innovation / Fulfillment (30% weight): How well does the phone address general consumer needs in different age groups (late 20's - mid 30's, mid 30's - 50's, 50+) / frustrations? Feasibility / Effective use of materials (30% weight): Can this idea / product be realistically implemented with current or near-future technology (within the next 2 to 3 years)?
Submissions may be illustrated or rendered in any format - hand sketches, digital drawings, or renderings - rendering tool used will not affect judging process. You may submit up to two different entries total.
