According to Gris Design, this imagined smartphone-synth would, of course, be for “musicians who want to take their music production with them,” and features a full keyboard, audio ins and outs, four built-in microphones, front-facing speakers, a full screen and three cameras to make the device the “perfect tool to create and share the process on the go.”

First, thanks for the support! ❤️ Second, here you have more pictures from OP-S a smartphone synthesizer concept inspired by @teenageengineering . . We designed OP-S to prove that it's possible to create a smartphone different from others. As artists we want to make new things always, anywhere and anytime. Inspiration is not a button, it just arrives, and when it happens we've to be ready. At Gris Design we believe that philosophy is the same at Teenage Engineering's design studio. Thanks for being an inspiration. . . #musicproduction #gadgets #dj #synthesizer #op1 #rhino3d #3dmodeling #rendering #render #teenageengineering #industrialdesign #productdesign #keyshot #designspiration #productdevelopment #concept #GrisCreativity
