Ikon was developed by K8 in 1998. This is a hands-free concept for the mobile phone. The earplug is pulled out of a reel with a spring that pulls it back into place after use. The reel protects and holds the lead, and can be fastened onto clothing with a clip making Ikon available at any time. Ikon is an eye-catching object which clearly communicates the brand. Ikon is based on the OHO system (One Hand Operation) incorporating wireless telephone communication. The Ikon concept was presented to Nokia, Finland.
