The Contact Board

Contact Coard is an accessory for landline phones to help users manage their contacts.

The board comes with a series of magnets. Each one is embedded with an RFID tag and stores a contact’s number.


There are 3 areas on the board: one to make the calls, another to edit the number and the third one to listen to messages. The user can call one of their contacts or listen to a message from that person by putting the magnets on a specific area.

To make a conference call, the user only has to put more than one magnets in the calling area. Adding a note under a magnet will remind the user what s/he should do with that contact.
