It Is A Rock? Is It A Mushroom? It’s A Phone

Round and non-glossy, the Runcible is the very antithesis of the smartphone.

Nothing about the Runcible is usual, from its shape to its name.

Round, much like the cap of a portobello mushroom, it’s the strangest smartphone ever. It’s styled after a vintage timepiece: a fob watch.

It takes its name from the works of Edward Lear, a 19th century British poet, best known as an inventor of nonsense words.
